No one likes to talk about hemorrhoids but many of us have them!!! Perhaps this small list of other remedies to use will be helpful for you to try for an at home treatment.
Aesculus: Rectum is dry, sore, burning, and feels as if full of small sticks, splinters, knives, gravel or other foreign substances had become lodged in the rectum. Can only kneel. Blind or protruding purplish hemorrhoids accompanied by severe aching and shooting pain across the back and hips as if they would break in two. Aggravated from stooping, rising from sitting, any movement.
Aloe: intense itching and burning hemorrhoids that protrude like a bunch of grapes. Pain prevents sleep; very sore, tender, and hot; constant bearing down in rectum. Better from cold water.
Collinsonia: painful bleeding hemorrhoids with sensations of sticks, sand, or gravel lodged in rectum; Hemorrhoids are worse due to increase pressure in the pelvis such as constipation, prolapse of the uterus or rectum, pelvic pressure such as in later months of pregnancy.
