3. Apple Cider Vinegar
You may know vinegar has a lot of uses including cleaning, but it might surprise you to find out it can also be used to treat hemorrhoids. The key is to use natural apple cider vinegar. Soak a few cotton balls in the vinegar and apply it to external hemorrhoids. You can also add about half a cup to a sitz bath. Apple cider vinegar can be helpful to decrease pain and itching. Keep in mind when you first apply it, you may feel a sting, but that will quickly dissipate and you should get relief in a few minutes.
