A sitz bath is an excellent remedy for relieving pain as the warm water can be very soothing. You will find relief from the pain, itching, and inflammation caused by the hemorrhoids as the warm water will allow the blood vessels to relax. To do this, simply fill the tub with warm water that is comfortable for you. The level of water should be shallow allowing enough water to sit in, but less than what you would bathe in. Sit in the warm water for about 15 minutes. You'll want to do this at regular intervals until you find relief.
