If you have medical issues with hemorrhoids, regardless of how big your problem is, we will recommend you several types of natural treatments which are very effective in reducing the itching, pain and bleeding.

Always wear clean underwear
Always wear clean underwear and change it often. It is advisable to carry an extra pair with you, particularly if you suffer from bleed, leakages and small accidents. The underwear you wear should be made of loose cotton as it will prevent sweating that causes itching.
Warm sitz bath

A sitz shower can be purchased from a drug specialist. This lets you have the shower while you’re sitting on the toilet seat.
Certain softeners such as ‘Colace’ will help you with defecation. On that way you will get rid of straining which makes it more comfortable to pass stools. If you have bleeding and swollen hemorrhoids your stool should be too smooth. Otherwise it will cause swelling and uneasiness.
Frequent clothing changes
Try not to wear the same clothes for long periods particularly if you wear pants. Namely, the feces, blood or mucus leakages easily may pass through your undergarments and soil your clothes. In case if that dries, you will not see them, but the germs anyway will be left where you sit. Furthermore, these germs will be transferred by anyone who touches where you sat.
