Some good home remedies for hemorrhoids are:

Crushed chickweed,or a compress of marigold or chamomile tea,will reduce heat and itching.

Clear congestion in the area with a good diet and teas of bitter herbs such as dock or dandelion root.

An ointment made with lesser celandine or pile wort which is best when made in the spring is very good and can be kept in the fridge until needed.

Soak a cotton ball in witch hazel and apply to the hemorrhoids over night.


or u could just go get something from the pharmacy. i would recommend anusol suppositories. they work great. just because it's not a raw herb doesn't mean it's harmful. please don't delete this again. thank you. was it u Sarah?

also, hot baths provide instant though short lived relief.

Response to 2nd answer: I'm sure there's products at the pharmacy, but that is not the question.
