Hemorrhoid Flare-Ups

Hemorrhoids can “flare up” at any time with or without warning and leave you feeling out of control. For some, flare-ups are related to things like stress, diet and constipation. The length and severity of a flare-up varies by person. Common symptoms of a flare-up are pain, itching, burning and even bleeding.

What You Can Do

During a flare-up, you may find relief by soaking the area during a warm shower or bath. During and between flare-ups, use PREPARATION H® products for relief from hemorrhoid symptoms.
PREPARATION H® Medicated Wipes can be used for gentle, everyday cleansing to reduce irritation. For more tips on preventing flare-ups, see home treatments.
