Many people experience hemorrhoids at some point, even pregnant women. They form when the veins in your rectum have too much pressure on them. Most people don’t discuss the fact that they have them. The below article can provide you some assistance in determining the causes of hemorrhoids and discovering treatments for avoiding this condition.
Changing your diet so that it includes a lot of fiber is one of the best treatments for, and prevention of, hemorrhoids. Try eating more leafy greens, pastas, oatmeal and whole grain breads. Fiber is known to “scrape” your intestines clean, and also retains moisture that keeps your bowel movements soft and reduces the straining that creates or exacerbates hemorrhoids.
It can be difficult to clean yourself properly when you have hemorrhoids, but doing so is a critical part of personal hygiene. Moistened wipes are much better than using toilet paper because it is more comfortable. Sit in a nice warm sitz bath to alleviate the swelling and pain associated with hemorrhoids. Soak in your bath for 20 minutes.
Consider enhancing your hygiene habits, and the products you use in the bathroom, in order to help prevent painful external hemorrhoids flareups.
Select toilet paper that is soft and doesn’t leave behind a residue, and wipe yourself with a moist wipe after defecating.
Applying ice then heat is an easy and simple home cure for hemorrhoids. The alternation of extreme temperature causes the hemorrhoids to shrink and disappear. You should start with ice, applied for about 10 minutes per day, then switch to a moist heat, which you should leave on for around 20 minutes.

The cause is the additional pressure placed on the rectal area. By utilizing the knowledge in this article and creating an effective treatment and prevention plan, you can lower the severity and frequency of hemorrhoids.
