Whether it’s a constant itchy feeling or seeing blood in your stool when you go to the bathroom, somehow you’ve figured out you’ve got hemorrhoids. First of all, it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. There are millions of adults who suffer from hemorrhoid symptoms in the United States alone. And just like you, there’s probably someone out there this very moment saying to themselves, “I have hemorrhoids – what now?”
There are plenty of at-home remedies that keep hemorrhoid symptoms at bay long enough for you to get on with your day. You may have already found a wide selection of ointments and creams at the local drugstore that work just fine. And maybe you’ve started adding more fiber to your diet and increasing the amount of water you drink each day. While all these things can provide temporary relief, unfortunately none of them will get rid of hemorrhoids for good. Chances are you will always have lingering discomfort, and even if you feel your hemorrhoid symptoms have disappeared for a while, you’re likely to experience flare-ups now and again.
