No but frequent BM's: ...can aggravate the symptoms of hemorrhoids. Frequent BM's and the associated wiping can cause irritation, inflammation and protrusion of the hemorrhoids.

There are also OTC creams (e.g. Anusol) that may also help with hemorrhoid symptoms. ...Read more

See below: Any time you sit on the toilet, gravity as well as the pushing that occurs with a normal bowel movement, moves blood into the hemorrhoidla veins. This causes them to swell. To improve the pain, do not spend too much time on the toilet and use baby or moist wipes. Avoid toilet paper - it only irritates the hemorrhoids more. ...Read more
