[YEA] I had 2 large hemoroids. I inserted garlic at bedtime the first night and didn't notice any improvement. The second night I soaked a cotton ball in ACV and kept that applied to the area while sleeping. It relieved the itching but didn't reduce the size. The third day I tried Arnica Gel. Its a gel I had purchased after facial surgery to reduce pain, swelling and bruising. I have been applying that externally 3 times a day for the last 2 days, one hemoroid is completely gone and the other is almost gone. The active ingredient in the gel is 7% Arnica Montana. There is also an Arnica Montana supplement I took for my facial surgery to reduce swelling and bruising. I havent tried that for hemoroids, just mentioning it since its available in more forms than just topical.
