If you suffer from hemorrhoids you know how bad they can hurt. If you are having a bad H day I have found that ice cubes can help to shrink swollen hemorrhoids. After that first "Whooo!!!!" moment it will start to shrink the hemorrhoid and soothe the pain and itching and slow the bleeding. I also use an herbal remedy that can be found at http://fasteffectivehemorrhoidtreatments.com
. Witch Hazel is a common ingredient in many herbal remedies and I have found it to works really well for me. I also like not having to go to the register and buy hemorrhoid medicine. It's pretty embarrassing.
