Allow yourself to soak in the water for at least fifteen minutes, or longer if possible.

 

A wonderful and lesser-known remedy for treating hemorrhoids is emu oil. Emu oil is made from the fat of the emu, a large bird native to Australia. This amazing oil is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. It promotes healing and thickens thinning skin, making it an excellent choice for the treatment of hemorrhoids.

 

Ice is effective in relieving hemorrhoid pain. Hemorrhoids can cause a good bit of pain. An ice pack will both decrease pain and reduce swelling. Alternate the use of an ice pack with the use of a warm compress. A very effective approach, in fact, is the use of a warm bath alternated with cold compresses or ice packs.

 

To reduce the symptoms that you have from hemorrhoids, apply a thin layer of aloe gel to the affected area of your skin. Aloe gel will help to reduce the inflammation that you have, by creating a rich layer of protection so that air does not irritate your skin surface.
