In brief: Conservative mgmt
Conservative management (non surgical) includes things like: sitz baths 2x/day, balneol lotion, wet wipes, calmol 4 rectal suppositories 2x/d-all for 7-10 days.

In brief: Diet and fluids
In general eating a high fiber diet and more importantly, drinking 80-100 ounces of non caffeinated, non alcoholic fluid per day, more if excercising vigorously, should be adequate enough to keep your hemorrhoids quiet.
If in doubt or not successful instituting above, get them checked by a colorectal surgeon.
