Ok to use Proctofoam: But just as important is to be sure to be eating a high fiber diet and most importantly drinking 80-100oz of caffeine free, alcohol free fluid daily, more if you workout strenuously. There are other meds that work better but if no repsonse to above after2 months you may need surgery to avoid complications such as an abscess. See a colorectal surgeon.
