Care of hemorrhoids: Medical therapies for hemorrhoids: bowel regimen (fiber, stool softners, water to achieve two soft bowel movements daily), sauves (prep h, desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) anti fungals), and hygiene (shower, hair dryer area daily).

I always start with making sure folks have enough fiber and water in their daily diet. ...Read more
