Try sitting in a tub that has warm water, for relieving swelling and pain as often as you can. This will increase the amount of blood flowing to the area and can reduce the pain and discomfort. As you sit in the tub, your knees should be bent. Allow time until the water cools a tad.
A spoonful of grape seed oil can reduce the swelling and the pain that often comes with hemorrhoids. This helps your body fight off infections and helps to reduce or heal hemorrhoidal bleeding.
There is one easy way to stop hemorrhoids from appearing. Use the restroom as soon as you feel the need. While the stool is in the intestine it absorbs water. The longer it stays, the harder the stool becomes, causing constipation. This straining will aggravate hemorrhoids, so you should avoid doing it.
