External hemorrhoids cause painful itchiness or burning that stop you from enjoying life to its fullest.
Maybe you developed your hemorrhoids from pregnancy or birth, or from inflammatory bowel disease such as colitis or Crohn’s disease.
Some people just develop hemorrhoids as they age.
No matter how you got them, we all agree they’re awful. Use a gentlepak cold compress for 15 minutes at a time to reduce the swelling and soothe the pain.
Tip: Add aloe vera or witch hazel to the washable cover to promote more healing.
