Can Thongs Irritate Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids: The question here is what actually bothers you? Underwear cannot cause internal hemorrhoids to prolapse, but it can irritate perianal skin.

Will prep for a colonoscopy irritate my hemorrhoids? How can I prevent them from becoming enlarged?

Been to derm 4 perianal redness /treated in past 4 mrsa-no yeast/fungus. Now red again. Can diet/sweat irritate the area?Possible hemorrhoid now :(
Avoid straining: If you have a small hemorrhoid, avoid straining to have a bowel movement (bm). Straining increases the 'venous pressure' of hemorrhoidal veins and may cause the hemorrhoid to 'grow'.
