Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anus and lower part of the rectum. This condition is common among adults but is treatable and preventable. Symptoms often can be relieved by trying a few natural and self-care treatments.

1.Aloe vera
Aloe vera is a cactus-like plant that has historically been used for skin conditions. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health reports that the sap of the plant is viscous and can be used on burns and wounds to provide relief and speed healing. Applying aloe to irritated hemorrhoids can help soothe inflammation and pain.

Doctor’s advice: This is safe to try if it’s pure aloe (and not in a cream with other ingredients).

2.Draw a sitz bath

To relieve itching and irritation, fill a tub with three to four inches of warm (not hot) water and sit in it with your knees bent for about 10 to 15 minutes. Gently pat yourself dry with a towel, but don’t rub the area.

Doctor’s advice: Yes, this is one of the best treatments. A sitz bath is generally available at a local pharmacy; this small bowl fits right over your toilet and offers a convenient way to soak and soothe the area.

3.Psyllium husk
Psyllium husk is a source of soluble fiber. It comes from the tiny seeds of a shrub common in India. It's an ingredient in some stool softeners sold over the counter at drugstores. It can help treat constipation as well as the pain and bleeding that can come with hemorrhoids. When it mixes with water, it swells and helps waste move through your digestive tract.

Doctor’s advice: Use this to soften stool and make bowel movements more regular. It won’t affect hemorrhoids at a local level, but it does regulate your bowels. Be sure to drink plenty of water if you take this supplement.

4.Witch hazel
Witch hazel is reputed to reduce pain, itching, and bleeding until hemorrhoids fade out. There isn’t much scientific support for its use but it does contain tannins and oils that may help bring down inflammation and slow bleeding. Supporters say it tightens the skin as a natural anti-inflammatory.

Doctor’s advice: It’s OK to use directly on the hemorrhoids.

In addition to these remedies, it’s a good idea to wear loose, cotton clothing so that you don’t trap moisture in the area, which can exacerbate symptoms. Making a few other simple lifestyle changes can also help reduce the chances you’ll develop hemorrhoids in the future.
