Hemorrhoids are swollen, inflamed veins in the anal canal that can cause bleeding, itching, irritation, burning, discomfort, and pain.
There is a range of treatment options, and the correct treatment will depend on the type of hemorrhoid (internal or external) and severity of the condition.
At Home Treatments
Conservative, at-home methods include stool softeners and topical medications to soothe burning, itching, and pain. While these methods may work temporarily, symptoms will general recur.
