After months of experimenting, and having tried castor oil and ACV, the both gave me temporary relief, reducing the itching and swelling, but not a cure. My most important discovery has been the effect of eliminating coffee. The itching was reduced by 95%. What I ingest definitely affects my hemorrhoids. My thought is that any foods that causes gas or bloating does not agree with my body and therefore I'll try to eliminate it out of my diet as a first step and later I'll see if I can tolerate small amounts.
I have also been using baking soda with a little soap when showering to eliminate any yeast condition that may be aggravating my condition. I'm also eliminating alcohol and other foods to determine whether specific foods are triggers.
