External hemorrhoid home treatment suggestions?

Miralax (polyethylene glycol) The first line treatment for hemorrhoids is actually making sure that no hard stools are passing by the swollen hemorrhoidal tissue and causing more trauma and inflammation. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) and generic MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) works well for most people to make the stool soft and allow healing of the hemorrhoids. If that doesn't solve the problem or if there is any bleeding then go see a surgeon for further treatment.

I would use any over the counter hemorrhoid medication. They all work reasonably well. Finally, i would use a step stool in the bathroom to keep knees above hips while on the toilet to minimize straining. Read more...
