If you are in search of an external hemorrhoid treatment to relieve your pain, you may be pleased to note that there are a lot of things you can do on your own at home to fix your problems. Extreme cases may require surgery or medication, but for the most part, you can be in charge of your own recovery. Here are a few suggestions to help you treat yourself at home.

One of the first things you can do for your external hemorrhoids is rest. When you give your body a chance to heal on its own, you get better much faster than you may have thought possible. You should take a few days off to remain on bed rest so that your body can fully heal. When that is not an option, make sure to lie down and rest as much as you can while you are at home. Relax in a warm bath and just let your body go to work trying to eliminate the problem.

To need to make sure you do not get constipated when you are trying to heal. Constipation and diarrhea can both cause hemorrhoids in the long run. Incorporate more fiber into your diet so your bowel movements come out more smoothly. Also drink water throughout the day to improve your digestion. If you still get constipated after that, you should take a stool softener to see if that helps. You can get some over the counter for just a few dollars, and they may make you feel a lot better.

You need to keep your anus as clean as possible to minimize the chance of infection. When you go to clean yourself though, make sure not to wipe up the area. Instead of using a rubbing motion to get clean, dab the area until it has no more waste on it. Do this with a baby wipe or moistened piece of toilet paper. If you have a bidet, that would be an even better external hemorrhoid treatment to try. You may also hop in the shower to clean off if you have a chance to.
