Rectal suppository: You can try a rectal suppository like preparation H which can be picked up over the counter at a local pharmacy, this contains hydrocortisone cream which will decrease the size and swelling of the hemorrhoids, it is also possible these hemorrhoids are X ternal which may be causing pain. Lastly you may want to see your doctor as they can refer you to a colorectal surgeon to have the hemorrhoids remlastly you may want to see your doctor as they can refer you to a colorectal surgeon to have the hemorrhoids removed
