In brief: Fiber, water, exam

Most people with hemorrhoid symptoms get better by increasing their fiber intake (think metamucil!) and water too.
Fiber and fluid work best together. Hemorrhoids get worse with either hard stools and straining or looser more frequent stools. Mom was right about the veggies and fruits. Not too much caffeine. But also get examined by a doctor- be sure it is hemorrhoids and not another concern.

In brief: Fiber

Increased fiber in diet, stool softener, 8 glasses water daily, regular exercise, anusol cream with Hydrocortisone and nupercainal cream over counter, good luck.
