  • A big thing is what you eat. You might have to change your eating habits.

  • I had them for 6 months PP after my first child... Ugh... aweful things. At least yours don't hurt though! I doubt you would need surger if they don't hurt. I know sitting in a hot bath or doing a sitz bath can help. But, I think the biggest is avoiding constipation, they should go away eventually.

  • Your best bet to keep them from swelling & irritating you is to eat lots fiber, fresh foods, etc. and avoid heavily processed foods, which are harder on your digestive track. Avoid acidic foods b/c the extra stomach acid produced can burn & irritate. Get plenty of exercise and don't sit too much b/c that aggravates them. Sometimes a sitz bath can help with irritation if it is bad. If you haven't tried something yet, get a medicated cream or suppositories. If the polyps are close to your anus, use moisturizing wipes, not just dry toilet paper, to wipe with, b/c the dry paper can irritate & cause bleeding. If you must sit for extended periods, try a donut cushion to alleviate pressure. Depending on where the hemorhoids are, you may want to consider surgery to have them removed because sometimes where they are causes them to be constantly irritated & nothing helps.

  • My hubby gets them. He takes a shower everytime he has a bowel movement to avoid wiping the area. Also use preperation cooling gel. He swears by it.
