  • Change your diet. Eat lots of fiber and make sure your stools are soft and bulky and easy to pass. The more you strain the longer they'll hang out.

    You can also use witch hazel for some topical relief. It's an astringent, so it will help close up the vessles (hemmerhoids are dilated blood vessles in your anus).
