Sitz baths!: Antibiotic or other creams are of little value. Witch Hazel impregnated wipes help itching and burning symptoms. Definitive care is Sitz baths with Epsom salts, 4-6X/d tepid water 15 min each. Avoid straining at stools, increase dietary fiber, avoid dehydration, and see a general surgeon for bleeding or ongoing complications.
