Whether your hemorrhoid condition is mild, severe or somewhere in between, here are a few hemorrhoid home treatments to try. Inexpensive and easy to apply, they're worth the effort if you are able to get hemorrhoid pain relief.
- Blackstrap Molasses - It has to be Blackstrap molasses, not the regular or "robust" type of molasses. Take two teaspoons daily. Shrinkage of hemorrhoid is usually obtained within a couple weeks. (It has been reported that varicose veins have improved after continuing this treatment for a month.)
- Shrink Hemorrhoids with White Vinegar and Salt - Bring to a boil one cup of white vinegar. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup of sea salt. Mix well, dissolving salt. When vinegar/salt solution has cooled, apply solution to hemorrhoids with a cotton ball, two to three times daily until hemorrhoids shrink and pain relief has been achieved.
- Witch Hazel for Hemorrhoid Itching - For this hemorrhoid treatment, simply soak a cotton ball with witch hazel and apply directly to hemorrhoids to relieve itching once a day before retiring for the night. Alternatively, you can soak a sterile cotton pad and hold pad to hemorrhoid for 3-5 minutes once a day.
