Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, can be quite uncomfortable.
They happen when the veins in your bottom area become swollen and painful, often leading to bleeding.
But there’s good news – you can ease the discomfort with these natural home remedies.
1. Scent Leaves:
These leaves can help you feel better. You can chew a few, but make sure to chew them thoroughly. Or, you can crush some leaves, mix them with water, and make a paste. Apply this paste to the affected area. Do this twice a day for relief.
2. Warm Salt Water:
Mix warm water and salt equally. Fill a bowl with warm water and a pinch of salt. Let the salt dissolve. Sit in this warm saltwater for a while – it’s called a sitz bath. Do this twice a day to relieve the pain.
3. Aloe Vera Gel:
Aloe vera gel can help heal hemorrhoids. Put the gel right on the area for a soothing effect.
4. Ice Packs:
Applying ice packs can reduce swelling, especially for large and painful hemorrhoids. Use an ice pack wrapped in a cloth or paper towel and apply it to your skin for 15-20 minutes at a time.
5. Anusol Suppository:
You can get Anusol suppositories at a pharmacy. Follow the directions and use them once a day for relief.
Remember, if you have hemorrhoids, eat more fiber-rich foods to avoid constipation, which can make hemorrhoids worse. These remedies can help ease the discomfort and speed up your recovery.
