A member asked:

Anusol seems to be shrinking hemorrhoids, but now some of them turning into small (whitehead sized) hard bumps that are itchy and hurt, is this normal?

Hemorrhoid changes: These changes in the hemorrhoids is normal, they will look better later, but you may keep some skin tags, that are normal, and just an evidence of your previous hemorrhoid problem.

Probably skin tags: When the hemorrhoidal inflammation decreases you may develop anal skin tags which is the skin that was stretched as a result of the inflammation. You need to have a doctor examine it to give you an accurate diagnosis
