What is the safest treatment for hemmorhoids?

What is the safest treatment for hemmorhoids?

Conservative care: Warm soaks in a tub, increased dietary fiber or stool softeners and hemmorhoidal cream or suppositories are a conserative and generally safe initial treatment. Straining on the toilet and heavy lifting should be avoided. Of course, an accurate diagnosis is needed to insure a proper approach as there are other possible causes of rectal pain, itching and bleeding. Bottom line, see your doctor first.
