Care Plan


First steps to consider

  • Most cases of hemorrhoids can be treated at home.
  • You can treat pain and itchiness with OTC hemorrhoid ointments or suppositories that reduce swelling.
  • Make changes that help reduce constipation if that’s causing your hemorrhoids.

When you may need a provider

  • Hemorrhoids don’t go away in 1–2 weeks, or keep returning.
  • Frequent bleeding, trouble sitting, or pain when sitting.
