Have symptoms of hemmerhoids. Will chewing tobacco make the condition worse?

I believe I have hemmerhoids. I also chew tobacco, whenever I dip I have to use the bathroom would chewing tobacco help or worsen my hemmeroids/bowel movements. Also I'm having trouble peering and when I do it slightly reduces the pain of my recrimination/anus, does that usually happen? I'm a male and 18, not ovrrweight and am always walking around if it makes a difference

Dear Sir,

Sorry to hear about your problem. Tobacco can make your symptoms worse and can lead to more pain and constipation. In this condition, you need to take laxatives and do Stiz bath (sit in a warm tub of water for 10 mins twice daily) for atleast 15 days. In addition to this you require a high roughage diet.

Hoping for the best.

A person who wants to quit gradually can substitute MINT LEAF for a part of this tobacco until they are eventually chewing the mint leaf and no longer need this nicotine.
