Cure for hemorrhoid relief

For quick relief from hemorrhoids, one of the most highly effective measures to take is to apply some petroleum jelly to your anus. This will provide relief to the itching and inflammation in the area and it will also help you to pass stools more easily, thus taking care of the biggest problem that aggravates hemorrhoids - that of hard stools. As an alternative, you can also apply aloe vera gel to the area. This will also assist in providing soothing cooling relief. The added advantage is that it will also help with healing since the plant is known for its magical healing properties. The second step you need to take is to change your diet to ensure that you are not eating in such a fashion that you are working towards making your stools hard. For this, you will have to cut back on flour and dairy based goods and increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables as well. You should also increase your intake of fibrous and nutritious foods such as bran, oatmeal and flax, which are very instrumental in healthy eating. The former will have a tendency to give you hard stools while the latter will make them softer, this helping you out considerably.

You can also apply witch hazel to your wounds, which is known for its properties to heal hemorrhoids quickly. This will also cool and provide relief from the itching. Dampness in the area will also not allow quick healing. To take care of this, you should keep your hemorrhoids dry by using a hair dryer on them. This is an unorthodox method, but one that will work effectively and well. You must also try not to use any kind of toilet paper on your rectal and anal areas while you are suffering from hemorrhoids as this will serve to aggravate your condition. Try to use water and wash with your hands.
