I had 5 hours of dark brown discharge instead of a period. I have been on Minastrin for 3 mos but I took Anucort-HC for 8 days 2 wks ago. Pregnant??
Besides Anucort HC, what are the names of some other suppositories that you can get a prescription for that help with hemorrhoids, and inflammation? Also what are some of the ones that have the highest patient success rate?
We do not:

Can I use ice to sooth pain from internal hemorrhoid or fissure? Saw idea to freeze water in glove & insert. Anucort helpin but still in constant pain
Freeze the pain: Cold usually dulls the pain from any tissue as it reduces nerve transmission but at the same time it will also reduce local blood flow (think frost bite!) which may not be a good idea.
