Hemorrhoid Home Remedies

By Aneron Kepasil

A hemorrhoid is an enlarged vein in the anus caused by pressure or other factors such as excess weight. Hemorrhoids cause bleeding, swelling and pain in the sufferer. Hemorrhoids are classified as either internal or external. External hemorrhoids often cause itching and burning, while internal hemorrhoids are marked by intense pain and bleeding. Many people use over-the-counter treatments to relieve symptoms of hemorrhoids. Doctors deal with hemorrhoids through various procedures, such as banding hemorrhoids. Natural methods can also be used to treat hemorrhoids.
