Sorry to hear you've been suffering from such severe hemorrhoids. Yes, hydrocortisone cream may be helpful to try and you can get it over the counter. If it still hurts, it may be worthwhile to schedule an appointment with a general surgeon to take a look and see if you could benefit from a procedure to remove them. Hope you feel better soon
