A lot of people nowadays who are new to hemorrhoid treatment are usually clueless and unable to manage the pain they feel because of the hemorrhoid’s inflammation. Thanks to the advancement of science to further understand the biological process, there are a lot of ways for you to treat and manage the pain. An example of this is the sitz bath. A sitz bath is just sitting on hot (but not too hot) water to relieve pain as well as reduce the overall size of your hemorrhoid. Fifteen to twenty minutes is sufficient for this treatment as too much time spent in hot water may produce undesirable results, often leading to skin irritation – which further creates discomfort for you.
