Is Vaseline Good For Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are often painful swollen veins near the anus, they can be treated with vaseline for hemorrhoids.

Also known as piles, they commonly are triggered by straining during bowel movements, the effects of pregnancy or childbirth, or constipation.

Here are some of the ways you can soothe haemorrhoid pain and discomfort:

Apply vaseline for hemorrhoids twice a day.

Take a warm bath – the NDDIC suggests soaking in a bathtub of warm water for about 10 minutes, several times daily. Use of a haemorrhoid cream or a suppository also can help relieve symptoms.

Use moistened toilet paper or a moist hand towel to clean yourself after a bowel movement

Apply an ice pack

Take an over-the-counter pain reliever

Try a topical cream – when recommended by your doctor. Creams that help numb the area may contain witch hazel, or those that soothe itching may contain hydrocortisone

Don’t use a haemorrhoid medicine unless you’ve spoken to your doctor about it first

With these measures, the pain and swelling of many symptomatic haemorrhoids will decrease in two to seven days, and the firm lump should recede within four to six weeks.

However, in cases of severe, persistent pain, your physician may elect to remove the haemorrhoid with a small incision. Performed under local anaesthesia as an outpatient, this procedure generally provides relief.
