Please don't: This is not the sort of thing to pop with a pin. It will not resolve the problem, and could in fact make it worse. Agree with others who have said you should be evaluated by a doctor. Also, this may not be hemorrhoids at all. Often itchy, swollen bottom is more a skin irritation than a hemorrhoid problem. Avoid wet wipes, creams, soaps, lotions. Don't wipe aggressively. Give it a chance to heal.
