3. Cold Compress
Another way to get some immediate relief is to use a cold compress. This can take the shape of a piece of ice wrapped in cloth, or it can be a wet flannel. Either way, this will help to constrict the blood vessels and that way reduce the amount of blood that is making it to the hemorrhoids. Interestingly, this can help to accelerate their death.
And of course, cold can help to numb an area and thereby provide some immediate relief also.
