    Hemorrhoids are swollen or inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum. Hemorrhoids cause intense itching, burning and pain. They are caused by intense pressure forced upon the rectum. This pressure occurs during pregnancy, heavy lifting or straining during bowel movements.

    Hemorrhoids are an extremely common ailment, although no one really talks about them. Nearly half of adults will suffer from hemorrhoids by the time they reach age 50.

    Thankfully, hemorrhoids are easily treatable. Lifestyle changes can prevent hemorrhoids from occuring, and home treatments can alleviate your current symptoms.

    Over-the-counter suppositories, creams, ointments and pads can help immediately treat hemorrhoid discomfort. Calmol 4 suppositories work fast, so you can sit down comfortably sooner. Americaine Hemorrhoidal Ointment is a bestselling ointment that numbs your anus with 20% benzocaine. It is the strongest numbing product available for hemorrhoids. Witch hazel pads are another great treatment for hemorrhoids. They can help you clean up after bowel movements without further irritating your hemorrhoids.

    If sitting down is becoming unbearable, try a hemorrhoid cushion. These inexpensive cushions keep weight off your perineal area.

    Warm baths and ice packs greatly relieve the symptoms associated with hemorrhoids. You can also use acetaminophen, aspirin or ibuprofen to temporarily relieve pain. Sitz baths also help relieve symptoms.

    Most over-the-counter remedies should only be used for seven days. If your hemorrhoids aren't getting better at this point, your doctor can help. She might recommend rubber band ligation or a chemical injection to help remove your hemorrhoid. Large hemorrhoids may require surgery, but this is quite rare.

    You can prevent hemorrhoids by eating more fiber, like that found in complex grains, fruits and vegetables. Eating less meat and processed foods will also help. Regular exercise keeps your bowel movements healthy and regular, reducing the risk of hemorrhoids. Drinking lots of water flushes and lubricates your system, making hemorrhoids less likely to return.
