What kind of pain?: Need diagnosis first. "Cure" depends on if simply just hemorrhoids/fissure or something serious. 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.)? History of colitis, infection, rectal/anal trauma or high risk? Best to get rechecked--don't delay please.

See a GI doctor.: At this point if the enemas are not helping, you need to be properly evaluated for a possible obstruction. See a gastroenterologist.
