Hemorrhoid

My poor husband has had a horrible hemorrhoid for over a week now. I sent him to the dr last week and he has been scheduled for a surgical consult on Thursday, but he may not get into surgery for another 2-4 weeks. He is in constant pain, has missing a few days of work because of it. What home remedies can he try while we wait for surgery?

  • I don't know how effective any of these are, but, maybe one will help him?

  • Sitting in a tepid bath seemed to help my ex, who had problems with hemorrhoids because he was in a wheelchair and couldn't get up and move around.

  • None of the OTC meds are working at all? If not, then I guess try the bath like Ballad said. Poor guy.
