- Practice WARM SITZ BATHS for about 15-20 minutes every day. Or at least three times a week. This will help you purify the area, prevent the tingling and lessen the swelling. It’s highly effective for treating the outer hemorrhoids and is preferable to be performed after the solid discharge. How to make it? Sit on a big bowl or in the bathtub filled with hot water and salt in it, regardless it’s Epsom, cooking or sea salt.
- TAKE STOOL SOFTENERS. Ease up the straining and prevent from swelling in the area to appear due to a hard stool. There are many softener such in Co-lace that can help and make the stool smooth in order to avoid bleeding and make it more comfortable to pass stools.
- CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES FREQUENTLY. You might not see it, but the bacteria from the blood, feces or mucus leakages from the underpants can be easily transferred to the pants, get dried and left on every place you sit on. They can later be easily passed to everyone who sits on the area.
- ICE CUBES are the best solution for soothing the area. Insert small ice cubes into the anus in order to cool the area and reduce the swelling, or press them on the external hemorrhoids for soothing effect.
