  • Take a sitz bath (sit in warm water) for 15 minutes 4-6 times a day and after having a bowel movement or when having pain.
  • You may shower and resume your regular activities. No strenuous exercise.
  • Include a lot of fiber and plenty of liquids (water) in your diet to help avoid constipation.
  • Pain and some bleeding around the rectal area or with a bowel movement is normal. Do not touch the area.
