Won't hurt, but...: "healing" depends on whether the original cause for hemorrhoids persists. Have you been straining at stool, have rectal dysfunction, perform an activity that increases pelvic engorgement with blood or increases pelvic pressure (heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, etc.)? Have your hemorrhoids been surgically or medically managed (; with otc or prescription drugs)? Are you sure they're hemorrhoids?

Not bad: But there are better. Baby desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) ointment will keep, down irritation bowel habits, bran, fluids, and occasionally surgery if not improving.

Exam : Many people present with "piles" and this can actually be the issue or one of many other problems that your doctor can help there are dietary, behavioral, hygiene modifications as well as procedures that can help with these common problems. Both constipation and diarrhea can lead to this condition as well it is best if you consult with a general or colorectal surgeon to help with this matter.
