Hemorrhoids are caused by an increased pressure in the veins causing expansion. It is commonly located at the rectum or in the body near the anus. This pressure can make the vein weaker thus resulting to bleeding while defacating. This is common to pregnant women wherein it's the fetus that causes the extra pressure in the veins.
With this, defecating can be extremely hard and thus causing constipation. Symptoms can easily be identified as follows:
1) Itching, irritation, and discomfort around the anus when defacating
2) Swelling, even as small as a pea
3) Pain with your bowel movements with bleeding and around the anus
4) Bleeding from your anus in your underwear
But worry not, because there are natural remedies you can do to treat these irritating hemorrhoids. See below:
1) Ice Pack
You can do this several times a day to lessen swelling. Make sure to not use this more than 10-15mins to avoid chilling.
2) Try a Sitz Bath
Sitz Bath can bought in your local drugstores. However, you can use salt plus other ingredients as an alternative. Just have warm water in a bath tub, and add the following: Mix 1/2 cup of Epsom salt, two tablespoons of baking soda, 2 tablespoons (29.6 ml) of witch hazel, 1 tablespoon (14.8 ml) of olive oil, 8 drops of lavender essential oil, and 8 drops of chamomile essential oil. Soak in this within 15-30 minutes.
3) Improve Hygiene
One thing you want for your hemorrhoids is to get worse. Always keep your anus dry and clean. Use wet wipes when using the toilet to avoid bacteria from thriving.
