    My boyfriend has hemorrhoids and they are awful. His doctor suggested taking in more fiber in his first and that helped a bunch.

      How old is your BF? And what kind of fiber did he take?

      25. He started eating a salad once a day (lunch) and I think a supplement.

      Salads the way to go. Natural fiber and roughage

      I used tucks with witch hazel and omg, it burned. I stopped using them and just rubbed mustard oil in there for a few nights (yes, I am Indian) through a cotton ball. Such a relief!

      It can sting. There’s a tucks with cooling pad, not sure if you tried that

    Sitting in a bathtub filled with warm salted water also helps with recovery.

    As others mentioned, fiber, at least 64 ounces of water per day, and taking more PTO helps with prevention.

      64 oz is solid advice. Did you find any hacks to remind yourself to drink more water?

      I drink one 16 oz bottle per meal. I also drink half a bottle immediately after waking up in the morning and before bed. That meets the 64 oz minimum.

      Then there are the drinks I have throughout the day while snacking - so I usually get an average of 88oz/day.

      That’s great to remain hydrated. How often do you pee?

      I don’t really track that, but I’d say 3 times a day.

    It’s tough. Drink plenty of water and take adequate fiber.
    Psyllium husk is a good natural fiber supplement.
    Avoid spicy food.

      I have heard a lot about psyllium husk. I am curious why is spicy food bad?

    I had to quit my MGMT job to cure my hemorrhoids.

    Serious note: caffeine and alcohol consumption can be a contributing cause, so dropping those would help you prevent them in the future

      It seems everything fun or part of our regular day is out to kill us. Salt sugar spice. Now tea coffee and alcohol. What’s left broccoli?

      Broccoli is great for you , albeit gassy ! There’s also surgery to relax the anal muscle for the tear to heal

      Surgery should be the last resort.

    Water water water. Also I will point out fiber made mine worse. I'm a power lifter so I consume a ton of protein. So increasing fiber just made the solid masses I shit larger. Not good. Turns out if you largely cut out fiber, with hifh protein, your body becomes more efficient and shits very small dense turds. That had helped me immensely. Witch hazel. Squatty Potty!!!! Have wipes at home and work.

      Solid advice. I asked someone else what their hack was to remind them to drink more water. Also, is squatty potty better than squatting?

      No. If you have access to a hole to shit in that's best. I don't, in Seattle all toilets. Squatty Potty is next best thing. I am a powerlifter so I find the exercise squatting to both help and hurt. On one hand it often softens everything. On another the massive pressure of compound movements on the core contribute further to hemorrhoids, so mileage may vary from the squat for hemorrhoid approach

    Stop sitting on the toilet seat for more than 2-3 minutes

    After each bath massage your butt hole with coconut oil

      Coconut oil is great as external aid. What about using coconut oil on your salads?

    Triphala helps a ton. And of course, drink your water.

      I’ve heard a lot about Tripala. Isn’t it used as a laxative? How much do you take?

    They really suck. Super painful. More than you would know if you haven’t had them before.
