No!: You need to see a physician to help you with your hemorrhoids. Trying to remove them yourself could do you damage. I'm sure you also know to keep from getting constipated by drinking plenty of fluids and eating foods with good fiber.

Pop my own hemorrhoid, is that okay?

Pop my own hemorrhoid, is that okay?

No, please don't!: This could lead to injury or infection. Sitz bathes can be helpful. Sit in a bathtub with warm water. There needs to be enough water to submerge the anal area. Soak for about 15 minutes – several times a day. An alternative is placing ¼ cup of witch hazel ; warm water in a basin. Soak for at least 15 minutes, at least twice a day. See your doctor for more help.

What's an effective treament for a hemorrhoid?

What's an effective treament for a hemorrhoid?

Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are very common. They occur from a stasis of blood flow in the blood vessels that go to our lower intestines. As you get older you are less active and sit for longer periods of time. Do not sit on the toilet to read. Use a soft wet type of tissue for wiping. Over the counter medicated pads may help with inflammation. See doctor if worsens. Exercise and eat fiber.

What causes hemorrhoids?

What causes hemorrhoids?

Pressure.: Too much pressure on the veins in the pelvic and rectal area causes hemorrhoids. Normally, tissue inside the anus fills with blood to help control bowel movements. If you strain to move stool, the increased pressure causes the veins in this tissue to swell and stretch. This can cause hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids often develop in people with constipation, those who are overweight, or during pregnancy.
