Exercising regularly and maintaining a balanced died that is rich in fiber contributes to having soft and regular bowel movements, which helps to reduce the symptoms of hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoid-related inflammation can be caused by increased stress from constipation, being overweight, an unbalanced diet or congenital connective tissue disorders. See also, Colon cancer can be prevented.

According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, hemorrhoids can be found in or outside the body:

  •    Internal hemorrhoids form just inside the anus, where the rectum begins. When they are large, they can prolapse (bulge outside the anus). The most common symptom of internal hemorrhoids is having blood in your stool.
  •    External hemorrhoids form outside the anus and they can make it difficult to wipe after a having a bowel movement. If a blood clot forms on an external hemorrhoid, it can be very painful.

Over-the-counter corticoid creams (such as cortisone) can help reduce pain and swelling. Other forms of reducing their size as well as swelling include using cotton underwear, avoiding the use of scented or colored tissue, and trying not to itch the area. If following these guidelines does not work, see a doctor for specialized treatment.
