Are there any other treatments for hemorrhoid symptoms?
You can try sitz baths. Just fill your bath tub with several inches of warm water, and soak the anal area for about 10-15 minutes. Avoid scrubbing. This is done after each bowl movement or up to 2-3 times a day. You can also use a moisturizing cream such as H-Releve Moisturizing Cream.

There are various herbal remedies may be beneficial for the relief of hemorrhoid symptoms. All H-Releve creams contain natural herbal compounds.

If you have severe pain, bleeding or symptoms that do not respond to over-the-counter medications, you should see a doctor. All cases of rectal bleeding should be evaluated by a physician.
Do symptomatic hemorrhoids require surgery?
