In brief: Use stool softener.
Both as treatment and prevention.
Eat more fiber, drink more water and exercise more.Hemorrhoids are basically veins that have been injured by our bad habits.Don't let your stools become very hard, the job of the colon is to recover the fluid in the stool;if we do not drink enough water, or eat only highly processed food (no fiber) and don't exercise(the helper to bowel transit) we can expect problems.
