Considerations...: "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?

Could be: at times very painful. Control of constipation use of strong hemorrhoidal topicals especially those with steroids and strong pain med. failurr of conservative treatment is an indication for surgery
