There are home remedies for what seems like every medication condition you can think of. The problem is that many of these are unsafe and simply just don’t work. So we have compiled a list of the best home cures for hemorrhoids that actually work to help save you some time and keep your body as well as skin healthy.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Of course this one tops our list. This ingredient has been used in just about every home remedy for any condition. It has many different forms and traits that makes it the perfect fit for treating inflammation of the skin. For easy application take a few drops of apple cider vinegar onto a cotton swab. You want to gently apply it directly onto the site of infection.
This at home cure is only meant to treat the symptoms of external hemorrhoids. We instructed only to use a few drops, as this is all it will take. Patients report a slight onset of a burning sensation immediately after application. However, this sensation goes away after a few seconds and provides overwhelming relief. So if you can bare a slight dis-comfortable feeling just before relief this is a great option for treating your hemorrhoids.
Widely know for its ability to soothe the skin, such as after a sun burn, aloe vera is another great home remedy for treating piles. It has anti-inflammatory traits just like apple cider vinegar that make it a great option. You can find aloe vera in topical gel, supplements, and frozen strips. The most common use is for the topical cram. You want to dab a small amount onto your hand or cotton swab. Apply it slowly across the infection site. This will provide a soothing relief to the skin.
This specifically targets itching, pain, and inflammation caused by hemorrhoids. Garlic naturally has both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory traits that makes it the perfect solution when it comes to treating the symptoms of piles. There are two different methods to applying this sort of cure. You can insert in into the rectum, with the help of a lubricant.
You will need to leave it in for as little as a few hours and as long as a full night’s time. Do not do this more than three times in a week. Next you can apply garlic via a pad. Soak your gauze in garlic solution, which is simply soaked garlic cloves in water. It’s best to use about two to three cloves and boiling water to make the mixture. Let it cool and soak the gauze pads. Apply them to the anus for instant relief.
These are some of the best home cures for hemorrhoids that we have come across and have proven results. A few others that didn’t reach our list of the top three, but have positive reviews include bilberry, butcher’s broom, and witch hazel. We suggest that you start with the three solutions listed above. Be cautious at first with your application. Only apply it to a small area of the infected skin and see how it reacts before coating the entire skin. In some rare cases allergic reactions have worsened the inflammation. If this happens you may want to try an over the counter treatment like Venapro. This is why you should excise caution upon first use, until you are comfortable the solution is the correct remedy for your particular infection.
