Make your own wipes for Hemorrhoids. Place paper coffee filters in a plastic zipper bag. Squeeze in enough Witch Hazel to saturate. Much cheaper than the over the counter hemorrhoid wipes or even the baby wipe option with the same active ingredient.
This worked really well for my husband every time. Boil three banana peels in about 2 cups of water. Simmer until half the water is gone. Add sugar to enhance the taste, I use rock sugar or raw sugar. Drink the water. It works over night. Keep drinking this until the hemorrhoids are gone. Usually takes about two days. He is now drinking banana peel water once a week to prevent it from coming back.
Take 1 tsp cayenne pepper in 8 oz of water and drink 2 to 3 times daily.
It sounds counter productive - like it would burn and make things worse, but it really does work! My husband suffered for years with hemorrhoids and has been free of them for 5 months after drinking this for one full week.
Spray some cortaid cortizone spray on the affected area. Then, put some gold bond medicated powder on the same affected areal. All these products can be bought at walmart. I swear by this. It really does work and very good. Cortizone is in the suppository doctors prescribe for hemorrhoids and the menthol in the powder cools it down. Great combo
Regarding creams for itchy hemorrhoids / piles. The cream Scheriproct didn't work well neither did the Ultraproct which was a doctor's alternative for the Synalar Rectal cream. I applied them them daily externally but the itching continued with both creams. I am not sure if they had any effect at all.
So I obtained Synalar Rectal Simple from the Internet and after one application externally there has been no itching for several days. That is how I remember it working, just one infrequent application is enough for days or even a week or more.
Not sure what the difference is but the Synalar main ingredient listed in big letters on the tube is Fluocinolone acetonide which is not present in either the Ultraproct alternative nor the Scheriproct.
1) Do not use toilet paper. Use medicated wipes instead.
2) Drink plenty of water and take some fiber supplement.
3) Take shower after each bowel movement
4) Ice your hemorrhoids to relieve the pain.
4) Take Calmovil Hemorrhoid Remedy - it has bioflavanoids - the good stuff from citrus fruits without the irritating acids. calmovil.com
5) Don't be afraid to go to proctologist!
Two points I've used everyday for about 12 years-
1) Always finish cleaning after bowel movements with a baby wipe to get completely clean down there.
2) My father taught me this one- after shower or bowel movement, get some castor oil, and rub a little on the affected areas (not too much- it'll dribble on your drawers). The lack of friction makes for maximum comfort all day.
Set a large jar of Vicks VapoRub in a small pan of low simmering water to melt. Add 1 cake of Camphor (from pharmacy)stir til completely melted into the Vicks. let cool. Learned from a Latino neighbor when my mom had 3 bleeding hemorrhoids hanging out after 5th child was born. She made mom apply this inside and out for a week or so, 3 or 4 times a day. Mom made this for friends in need for the next 40 years. She said it saved her.
This is it. Small Ice Cube, Cotton Ball, Witch Hazel, Mineral Oil and Juice.

Take 1 tablespoon or less of Mineral Oil with Juice every morning. Avoid using harsh toilet paper. Avoid foods which cause constipation. Eat plenty vegetables drink plenty water, juice.

This has worked wonders for me several times. With the birth of each baby I would have a really hard time with hemorrhoids. Then after a bout with pneumonia with all the coughing & sneezing I was in agony. A nurse told me to peel a small clove of garlic, prick it with a knife point & insert it into the rectum...it worked immediately to kill pain & itching & healed me up very quickly:-)
