In brief: See below

Local measures such as soaking 15-20 minutes in warm water, keep the anal area dry after washing, avoid rubbing or scratching the area.
Watch for some acidic foods such as citrus and tomatoes that can irritate the region. Keep bowels soft & regular, use fiber supplements & avoid constipation or straining. Tucks (witch hazel) pads may offer some relief.
