Hemorrhoids Home Remedy Comments

1 Comment for the Hemorrhoids Home Remedy


I'm in my early 30s and discovered I've had hemorrhoids for the past few years now, but they usually went away after a couple days with PREP H. It may have started while I was in the Navy, eating all that ship food does a number on your insides and on their way outside!

I read and tried a number of these home remedies and went to see the doctor after the beast wouldn't go away for over a month. (Which was very unusual for me so far.) Got prescribed PROCTOFOAM and started inserting that into my butt! Yay Fun! psssh. PROCTOFOAM seemed to kinda work, but its more for internal hemorrhoids than external. But I began applying it externally too. Seemed to work for a couple days and then after a regular bowel movement, he was back.

BTW my diet and fiber intake are pretty good. I don't have straining bowel movements. oh and I always use baby wipes and never toilet paper, and the last month I always use the PREPARATION H WIPES with WITCH HAZEL.

Time to try some herbs! I got a bottle of VARI-GONE, which is supposed to help with varicose veins and hemorrhoids. It has HORSE CHESTNUT and RUTIN in it along with some other ingredients. Been taking 1 pill twice a day for the past couple weeks. Can't really tell if it's helping but it did seem to make me thirsty and get migraines the first couple days!

Off to home remedies! I got a bottle of WITCHHAZEL from Walgreens, a whole GARLIC, and cotton balls. Made my own little concoction and stuck it in there! First time it started to burn (I used fresh garlic cloves chopped up), so I reduced the amount of garlic. Pain subsided and it seemed to reduce the hemorrhoid. After a couple hours I removed the cotton ball and applied DESITIN BABY DIAPER RASH treatment (it has ZINC OXIDE which is another home remedy). This combination seemed to work pretty well for a couple days, but then the hemorrhoid came back again! and my asshole was getting a little raw from the garlic/cotton ball I think.

Next, I tried a new bottle of Prep H cooling gel, since my other one was close to expiration. Kinda works and a nice cooling sensation. Called the doc again because not much improvement, but they said they will give me a fiber supplement and for me to take more sitz baths.

During this time I have been taking full body baths 2 or 3 times a day. Just left the water in the tub and heat it up a little each time. They do a pretty good job in combination with everything else.

Overall, I think everyone has different types and severity of their hemorrhoids and out bodies work differently to get rid of them, but this is ultimately what I have come up with and it seems to work for me!
- I got a bottle of RUTIN supplements(450mg) I take 1 capsule 3 times a day.
- A bottle of Garlic capsules (1000mg), 1 pill twice a day.
- Prep H Wipes with witch hazel (for whenever you have a bowel movement, or take a shower)
- Prep H Cooling Gel/cream (to help it shrink down)
- Drink lots of water!! I try to drink at least 1000 ml of water and this is a minimum you should drink 2000 ml of water(2 liter or 8 8-ounce glasses of water)
- I changed my posture on the toilet. Now I sit up straight and put both my feet on a small stool. The angle is great and helps bowel movement!
- Regular exercise! I have been slacking lately but now get a 45 minute cardio routine 3-4 times per week. Try not to sit around on your ass all the time, get up a walk around. Lay on your side instead of sitting if you can.
- The last thing I did was cut out alcohol from my diet for now. I used to have a beer or two per night and now I just drink water instead.

I think that's it! Hopefully it helps some of you other hemmes out there!
