  • Sitting in a tub of almost too hot water really helped me. Make sure you have lots of fiber - constipation aggrevates it and that is common in pregnancy - if you are constipated, talk to you Dr about possibly taking a stool softener. Witch hazel is an inexpensive way to ease pain too.

  • BAD! I got the hemorrhoid cream and used it. Wipes don't work because there isn't enough "juice". Witch Hazel works.

  • Ice Cold Wash cloth in the crack. Temporary... but it helps. And Hemorrhoid cream of course.

  • Maybe its just me but when I had them I switched from normal toilet paper to baby wipes. It took a few days but eventually the hemorrhoids went away on their own.
