If you've been searching for a real simple home remedy for hemorrhoids this home remedy just don't get much easier.

Get yourself a large jar of pure petroleum jelly, any brand is fine as long as it doesn't have any perfumes, dyes, or medication. Put a generous amount on a swatch of toilet paper and wipe yourself like when you have a bowel movement. From then on anytime you have a bowel movement reapply the petroleum jelly.

Fill up your hot water bottle with hot water and sit in your favorite chair and put your feet up. Or lay down on the couch and place the hot water bottle under you, between your buttocks and your thighs (where your legs bend to sit). Make sure it's a hot water bottle and not an electric heating pad. You need the moist heat to penetrate deep into the tissues of your rectum.
