Make sure you have sufficient fiber in your diet, and that may range anywhere from 25 to 35 grams of fiber per day. For those of you who are counting. Make sure you consume enough fluids. Now, there are also some topical medications that you can apply to hemorrhoids, some for symptom relief, but there are also certain categories of medicine which could actually help with inflammation and actual shrinkage of a dilated hemorrhoidal vein.
