    Most of OTC medications don't bring lasting relief, however, keep in mind that beside hemorrhoids itself you have also to cure the cause of hemorrhoids.

    Hemorrhoids develop due to too much pressure put on the veins in the anal areal. They are also known as varicose veins of the rectum.

    The most common cause is constipation, other are pregnancy, overweight, overeating, sitting or standing for long period of time, genetic predisposition, fatigue liver, Vitamin B-6 deficiency, acid/alkaline imbalance. Find out what is caused your hemorrhoids, and treat also this, while treating hemorrhoids.

    Hemorrhoids are associated with constipation and straining at bowel movements. How to get rid of hemorrhoids

    Pregnancy is also associated with hemorrhoids. These conditions lead to increased pressure within the hemorrhoidal veins that causes them to swell. Other conditions, for example chronic liver disease, may also cause increased venous pressure and may be associated with hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are very common and are estimated to occur in up to one-half of the population by age 50.
