Cure for Hemorrhoids?

I went to visit my parents the other day and my mom said she was uncomfortable because she had Hemorrhoids! Naturally I laughed but then she said that my step-dad said that Rubbing vicks(stuff you rub on your chest when you have a cold) ON your butthole it works better then any kind of Hemorrhoid cream. Does anyone know if this is true? Do you think it would burn ? And, be honest, who would actually try to see if it works?


I am not looking for a cure. I am looking to see if anyone else would try this home remedy.....

    Hemorrhoid No More book was extremely readable clear and concise and I enjoyed reading it very much. I especially liked the objective presentation of holistic medical treatments.

    Note that:

    Diarrhea can contribute to hemorrhoid formation because the bowel undergoes pressure strains due to the condition. Undue pressure on the veins that make up internal hemorrhoidal structures can worsen existing damage. Internal hemorrhoids are not visible, unless they proplapse (protrude) from the anus, either constantly or during a bowel movement. If this is the case, then you have a grade III or IV internal hemorrhoid. If the protrusion is on the anal verge or the area surrounding the anus, then its likely an external hemorrhoid. Reducing pressure from issues of diarrhea and constipation will help. Not straining during a bowel movement, not lifting heavy objects, not sitting for extended periods, all will help.

    Most of the time, treatment for hemorrhoids involves steps that you can take on your own, such as lifestyle modifications. Learn here

    But sometimes medications or surgical procedures are necessary. If your hemorrhoids produce only mild discomfort, your doctor may suggest over-the-counter creams, ointments, suppositories or pads. These products contain ingredients, such as witch hazel or hydrocortisone, that can relieve pain and itching, at least temporarily.

    Don't use an over-the-counter cream or other product for more than a week unless directed by your doctor. These products can cause side effects, such as skin rash, inflammation and skin thinning.

    You can often relieve the mild pain, swelling and inflammation of hemorrhoids with home treatments. Often these are the only treatments needed

    With these treatments, hemorrhoid symptoms often go away within a week. See your doctor if you don't get relief in a week, or sooner if you have severe pain or bleeding.

    I think that you are just joking with us all.

    Of course, vicks will burn. & you have stated a very sensitive area to be using vicks on. You joker you.

    This complaint sometimes requires surgery. An appointment with the doctor would be appropriate.

    See ya JOKER.
