What home remedies are there for hemorrhoids?

Some other home remedies one could try would be to apply Vaseline or petroleum jelly to the toilet tissue so that when you wipe yourself after each bowel movement, you’ve applied a lubricant, which could also heal an inflamed or irritated area. After application, you might want to sit on a firm surface for anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute. That may help reduce the swelling, or even pop your protruding hemorrhoids back into place. You could also try some witch hazel (an astringent) which may help soothe inflammation and also helps shrink protruding hemorrhoidal veins.
