TIP! If you are dealing with a hemorrhoid problem using over-the-counter topical treatments, (like creams or ointments) be careful not to rely on them for longer than one week.

To stay as healthy as possible and limit the symptoms of hemorrhoids, make sure that you maintain a proper diet. This means that you should reduce the foods that have high cholesterol and fat content to improve the way that you feel. Eat well-balanced meals that are rich in protein for optimal results. 


Use pain-relieving creams when necessary, but sparingly. Such creams do not actually treat the hemorrhoid, they simply reduce the pain. Overuse can actually further irritate the area, as well as reduce their effectiveness. Use these treatments when you absolutely need to in order to stay seated, and avoid using them otherwise. 


TIP! If you suffer from hemorrhoids do not allow embarrassment to prevent you from seeking assistance in treatment from a doctor or pharmacist. Half of the population suffers from hemorrhoids at some point in their life, so this is nothing to new a licensed professional and they can make it so your length of suffering is greatly decreased.  


You may have noticed that when you sit down for long periods of time, your symptoms often get more severe. Long amounts of time sitting, can lead to an increase in the severity of your symptoms, so make sure that you stand up and walk around regularly, if you must sit for an extended amount of time.

Eating plenty of carrots or drinking the juice will give you a big boost of A vitamins and help out in a big way with your hemorrhoids.
