Prescribed 3 weeks anusol for external hemorrhoids, how long before i notice it really start to work? I've had them persisting for about 2 years.
Diet and exercise: Hemorrhoids are enlarged veins in the rectal area. Anusol only for relief of itching and pain, not a cure for hemorrhoids. Eating a balanced diet, rich in fiber, together with plenty of fluids, softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can cause hemorrhoids or worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids.

Daily: Apply the cream daily. If you have a bowel movement then do a sitz bath then the cream. This should minimize the itch. Hopefully the duration of treatment is less than a week.

Ok to use Anusol: 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.
