[YEA] Just wanted to share my experience and hopefully someone will use it the same way I used the info posted here when I was in need. I got a very bad external hemorrhoid on March 23 , due to one day of constipation. One time only! BTW, will never eat white dry Chinese rice ever again! Anyway, I got scared when I saw it there, like a bean size and very... Outside! So, I started the research and after I filtered the remedies I tried the AVC local first. It didn't work for me, it actually got a bit more swollen and red and itchy. I gave up the AVC used external but I did take internal one tbsp every morning and every evening in a full glass of warm water. Then I did the following: small cotton balls wet with witch hazel, put in the freezer, used one local after every bowel movement. After that applied the coconut oil ( sometime dried my "area" with the hair dryer ( don't laugh).
I used Coconut oil suppositories every night: I rolled coconut oil in the wrapping plastic foil, put in the freezer- just give them the form of a normal suppository, a bit thinner to ends. It worked very well, I could swear by it! Every evening I was drinking a full glass of water with a tbsp of flaxseeds. I let the flaxseeds sit in the warm water for 5-10 min just to get them soft and very easy to swallow. Bathsits, warm water ( I did hot water at the beginning, the hemorrhoid didn't like it). I also started using Proctosedyl cream ( Dr recommended) on March 27. By April 1st my hemorrhoid was gone. I didn't use the cream too much, maybe three days only but the best result I believe I got it from the coconut oil. I hope this helps. Simmy
