How does hemorrhoids can heal on it's own?
Note: There is no set duration for hemorrhoids. Small hemorrhoids may clear up without any treatment within a few days. Some of the above factors can also make it difficult for hemorrhoids to heal, allowing the problem to persist for longer.
Hemorrhoids can be caused by straining during a bowel movement or by conditions such as pregnancy or obesity, which place undue pressure on the lower abdomen. By doing so, the veins in and around the anus can begin to stretch and swell abnormally, causing pain, burning, and itchiness. As frustrating as hemorrhoids can be, even scientists are not entirely sure why some people develop them and others do not. What we do know is that there are certain factors that can increase a person's risk. Some of these (such as a tendency to be constipated) are modifiable, while others (such as genetics and age) are not.
Hemorrhoids treatment can be the source of unrelenting aggravation for some and the cause of debilitating pain in others. The aim of treatment is threefold: to alleviate the immediate symptoms; to prevent further exacerbation of the injury, and to resolve the underlying cause This is often accomplished with high-fiber diets, stool softeners, and over the counter topical medications. In severe cases, however, surgical and non-surgical procedures may be used to remove the hemorrhoid.

Practice Good Anal Hygiene
It is essential to keep your rectal area clean, particularly after a bowel movement. If you have multiple or severely inflamed hemorrhoids, you can buy a perianal irrigation bottle from the drugstore or use any clean, squeezable bottle you have on hand (such as sports water bottle). Squirting warm water on the affected area not only helps clean the skin but has a comforting, therapeutic effect. You can then follow up by dabbing the anus with a moist towelette or flushable baby wipe until thoroughly clean. When bathing or showering, avoid deodorant soaps or harsh cleansers, which can irritate and dry the skin. If anything, just wash the anal area gently with plain water either by splashing or using a shower hose attachment.
Afterward, dab the skin dry and apply some Aloe Vera directly onto the hemorrhoid with a cotton ball. Pure vitamin E oil or coconut oil can also be helpful, moisturizing and alleviating inflammation all at the same time. Avoid cream or lotions containing these oils as they can be irritating.
