Unspeakable worries…How to self-manage hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are unexpectedly common among adults over middle age. Over 50 years of age show more than half of the symptoms.

It’s an embarrassing and embarrassing illness, but if it’s not severe, you can take care of yourself without getting into a hospital. US’Harvard Health Publishing’ has introduced a natural remedy that can relieve symptoms.

◆ sitz bath = relieves itching or pain. In a basin or sitz bath, receive warm water to a depth of about 10cm. Sit in the water for 10 to 15 minutes. When you finish sitz bathing, dry the affected area with a towel, but don’t rub it. Do it three times a day.

◆ Cabbage = If you eat foods high in fiber, such as seaweed, radish, and beans, the stool becomes more moist and soft. Easier bowel movements can prevent bleeding or inflammation. It is also helpful to take fiber supplements made from raw materials such as psyllium husk or bran.

◆ Ointment = There is an over-the-counter hemorrhoid cream or ointment. Soothes the inflamed area and relieves itchiness and pain. Choose products that contain lidocaine or hydrocortisone.

◆ Comfortable = Do not postpone your bowel movements. Delayed stool builds up tension and pressure in the stomach, exacerbating hemorrhoids. Do not sit on the toilet for too long. Lifting your heel while sitting on the toilet seat changes the position of the rectum, which helps in quick bowel movement. Hygienic after-treatment is also important. Water tissue for babies or a cloth dampened in warm water is good. If it’s hot, apply petroleum jelly or aloe gel to help.
