Sitz baths can help reduce the pain of hemorrhoids (piles) You can buy a special sitz bath that fits over your toilet or you can just get into the bath tub and sit in a few inches off warm water. Put a little Epsom salts in the water to help reduce inflammation. Try doing this 2-3 times a day. There are many creams available but Preparation H is old, tried and true-use as directed. Tucks are also helpful to cool and clean the area. Dont use toilet tissue to wipe after a bowel movement-use premoistened flushable wipes or just a mild soap and warm water cloth to clean after a BM. Add some fiber supplement to your diet; Benefiber, Metamucil, Citrucel etc. to keep the stools soft and prevent constipation and prevent straining which makes hemorrhoids worse. Drink lots of water so the fiber supplement works better. If these measures do not help then you may need to see a Dr.
