Shrink vs remove: External hemorrhoids hurt when inflamed. Creams, ointments can help with flareups as can avoiding constipation by keeping your fluid and fiber up and dropping weight if obese. Still, these things do not remove the hemorrhoid. If a continuing problem or if acutely painful (thrombosed) then excision with surgery is the answer. This can be done as an outpatient. Good luck. Feel better soon. ...Read more
Why do I have external hemorrhoids/skin tags but no internal hemorrhoids? I thought the external ones came from inside. Thank you.
External hemorrhoids: Usually the hemorrhoidal cushions or vein complexes originate internally.

I have external hemorrhoids (piles). Can I consume Arcoxia for pain relief? Or what can I do to relieve pain & cure it at home as quickly as possible?
Simple remedies: For piles, topical preparations work rather well - Preparation H, witch hazel pads, etc. Avoid alcohol and anything that can damage the liver, avoid fatty, rich foods. Arcoxia is a COX-2 inhibitor (like Celebrex (celecoxib) and the now-removed Vioxx) that is available in Australia - not sure where you are getting it from if you are in US. It can only help temporarily, and is best to avoid it if possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
