Hemorrhoids are swollen veins around the anus. They often itch, burn, or bleed. Constipation makes them worse.

What to do to prevent it:

  • Sit in a basin or pan of cool water to relieve the pain.
  • Follow the advice above for preventing constipation.
  • Soak some clean cloth in witch hazel (a liquid plant medicine) if you can find it, and put it on the painful area.
  • Kneel with your buttocks in the air. This can help relieve the pain.
