Hemorrhoid Treatments And Management
By Mark Ferrer

One of the most common hemorrhoid treatment approaches is diet. There are several types of fruits, which can relieve the symptoms and even cure hemorrhoids. Some of them include: cantaloupe, pomegranate, papaya, oranges, bananas, black currant berries, cherries, blueberries and blackberries.

Aside from fruits, fiber-rich food can definitely help you get rid of hemorrhoids. Donít forget to include these foods in your diet: dark-green leafy veggies, flax seeds, alfalfa, blackstrap molasses, lima beans and sweet potatoes. It is also advised to try these hemorrhoid treatment approaches for two weeks.

Preventing constipation and pain relief

Constipation is one of the leading causes of hemorrhoids, so preventing it can surely help you avoid the onset of the disease. Drinking plenty of fluids and avoiding alcohol and caffeinated drinks is tremendously helpful. A healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruits and fiber is also important. Donít forget, though, to combine your diet with regular exercise.

If you need to use laxatives,

opt for the bulk-forming variants. There are several types of laxatives that can cause diarrhea and even exacerbate the condition. And if you feel the urge to defecate, donít delay it any further.

Pain management is also incredibly important when youíre suffering from the condition. Taking warm baths is one way to relieve painful symptoms.

When cleaning anal area, you should choose to pat it gently with soft baby tissues instead of a coarse bath towel. Baby wipes are ideal when youíre suffering from hemorrhoids. Using coarse towels and rubbing the area rigorously can only worsen the condition.

If you feel any swelling on the affected area, using ice packs or a cold compress will be helpful. Herbal creams made from witch hazel are also a popular hemorrhoid treatment, which can alleviate the pain. Aloe vera, butcherísb broom and pilewort are also some of the most accepted herbal remedies for hemorrhoids. But if you canít find any of those creams, applying the area with a numbing ointment or hydrocortisone creams are definitely helpful.
