| | Re: Newbie needs hemorrhoid help
I feel so sooo sorry for you. There are a few things you could try,
Aloe Vera, is a natural remedy which when applied to hemorrhoids, it has a cool soothing affect. It also releives infamation and brings instant relief.
It's a anti-inflammatory and helps shrink inflamed tissue. this allows the hemorrhoids to heal.
Aleo Vera helps with itching too and reduces swelling.
You can usually find 100% organic Aloe Vera at most drug stores.
I know you have already tried sitz baths but have you tried adding some epsom salts to the water, (any kind of salt will do) if you don't have epsom.
Dabbing the area with witch hazel is another instant reliever of symptoms.
Just pour some onto a tissue and place directly on affected area.
You can also buy wipes ready soaked in witch hazel. (more convenient) and you can take them with you when your out and about.
Hope this helps you.
