A hemorrhoid is a collection of dilated veins in the rectum that causes painful bowel movements. It is critical to maintain soft stool with fiber and a gentle bowel cleanser such as Gentle Move, or even cascara sagrada or LBS II if necessary. A little fiber and plenty of water can also help. To help shrink the hemorrhoids, combine Golden Salve and white oak bark and apply the mixture topically. You can also add essential oils in very small amounts to the Golden Salve and white oak bark mixture. Topically applying Vari-Gone Cream is another option.
