Answer: Apply coconut oil to the hemorrhoids. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties which can help with the itching. It can relieve pain and inflammation and should help hemorrhoids to heal in a few days.
Witch hazel compress. Soak a pad in organic witch hazel, freeze, and apply to hemorrhoids (great for postpartum too!). These can soothe and heal the inflamed area.
Aloe vera. Apply aloe to the inflamed area for relief. Best to use fresh aloe vera from the leaves of a plant. Whole Foods sells large aloe leaves or you can get a plant at your local nursery. If those aren’t options, be sure to use a pure aloe vera without added chemicals and fragrances.
Wet wipe. Instead of using dry toilet paper, try using natural baby wipes or witch hazel wipes to avoid more irritation.
Acupuncture. If circulation is to blame for your hemorrhoids, acupuncture can help get things moving. Acupuncture can also improve muscle function, which can help with pregnancy hemorrhoids.
