If you repeat this process a few times a day, your blood vessels will constrict and you will get rid of the hemorrhoids faster.
4. Soak in Warm Water
Instead of applying a cold compress you can also try a warm one or soaking in warm water. You will feel immediate relief from itching, swelling, and pain as warm water will relax your blood vessels.
There are a few ways to use this method. You can simply soak a soft cloth in warm water and then apply it on your hemorrhoids. You can also take a bath in warm water, but remember that it can’t be hot as it can actually make your problem worse. Stay in the water for about fifteen minutes.
If you often suffer from hemorrhoids, buying a sitz bath will be a good investment. A sitz bath is a small, deep tub, which you can place on top of your toilet seat. You fill it with warm water and soak only your perineal area. It’s very comfortable and easy to use so you will be able to repeat the process even a few times a day.
You can fill the sitz bath with warm water only and it for sure will be very helpful itself. However, you can also add to the water some ingredients, which will make the bath even more powerful. These are calendula, yarrow, chamomile, some Epsom salt, or common table salt.
Just remember that the water can’t be too hot and that each soaking session should last for at least fifteen minutes. After each bath you should also gently dry your anal area with a soft cloth or towel. If you do it three times a day, you will cure your hemorrhoids faster.
5. Prepare a Remedial Paste
To reduce the inflammation and pain that your hemorrhoids cause, you can prepare a remedial paste, which you will apply topically. You only need two ingredients – Epsom salt and glycerin.
Gather two tablespoons of Epsom salt and two tablespoons of glycerin. Mix them so that they have the consistency of a thick paste. Gently apply the mixture on your hemorrhoids and leave it for about twenty minutes. Then, wash it off with warm water and dry the skin with a soft towel.
Repeat it a few times a day and you will quickly reduce the pain, itching, and discomfort which your hemorrhoids cause.
6. Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be helpful in case of both external and internal hemorrhoids. For the latter one simply dilute one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it once a day. After a few days you should notice that the pain significantly reduced.
If you suffer from external hemorrhoids, you should soak a cotton pad or a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and apply it on the area affected with hemorrhoids. It may cause some stinging feeling at the beginning, but it will go away after a few minutes. This solution should bring you immediate relief from itching and pain.
You can use this method even a few times a day and you will eliminate the hemorrhoids faster. It’s important, though, to use apple cider vinegar which is natural and pure.
7. Try Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil has strong anti-inflammatory properties which can effectively help to reduce the hemorrhoids and the unpleasant symptoms they cause. Before you use it, you should mix the tea tree oil with some carrier oil, such as castor oil or olive oil.
Simply mix a few drops of tea tree oil with the same amount of some carrier oil and with the use of a cotton pad or a cotton ball gently apply the mixture on your hemorrhoids. You may also massage the area for a few minutes so that the oil will be absorbed better.
You don’t need to wash the mixture off. Use this solution a few times a day to get rid of your hemorrhoids quickly and safely, with no side effects.
8. Use Olive Oil
Olive oil itself can also be very useful in reducing hemorrhoids. Moreover, it can help you eliminate all types of piles as you can use olive oil both externally and internally.
