Gabby, have you tried sitz baths?
I never, in my wildest imagination, thought that something as simple as soaking in warm water a few times a day would heal hemorrhoids, but somehow, it does!
You can pick up a sitz bath at any pharmacy store for under $15.00. You put it on the toilet (after lifting the lid) then fill it with nice, warm water and sit/soak for 15-20 minutes a few times a day. You can do it as often as you like--the more, the better. You'll find that you want to do it often because the warm water itself is very soothing.
You could also put about 1/4 cup of Witch Hazel in the water for additional benefits, but you'll be pleasantly surprised at how just the warm water soaks alone will help you.
Hope you'll give it a try. Feel better!
