Since giving birth to 3 childern, I have occasionally suffered from very painful hemorrhiods. The best relief that works for me is a very warm shower with a detachable shower head that you can aim the flow directly on the hemorrhoids. This works better that soaking in a bath because the bath water cools down too quickly. After the shower be sure to dry thoroughly, even with a hair dryer. Then apply some vaseline or any petroleum jelly (unscented) on the area. This is best done at night just before bedtime when you can lie down and be off you feet. Hope it helps for you.

I have had hemorrhoids for a few years. When I first started getting irritation it was just itching. Now that I had my baby (5 weeks ago), I get pain too. It can be unbearable. I like to soak in a hot bath it makes it go away for a while. Also if you wear sweats it helps. Something loose and baggy. Jeans make it worse. My Dr. also says to drink lots of fluids and eat more fiber. If it is a continual thing use stool softeners. I enjoy the Bath it goes away the whole time in the tub and it is also good me time!
