Miralax (polyethylene glycol) or generic versions work well for many people.

Would oral prednisone help a thrombosed external hemorrhoid thats failed tx w/ hc suppositories & cream? What's best for pain control?
Hemrrhoid: Oral Prednisone has not been well documented in the literature in the treatment of hemrrhoids. Keeping on a strict schedule of nsaids for their anti-inflammatory effect, barring no contra-indications in your personal history, would be beneficial to you. I would recomment starting with Ibuprofen (motrin) 600mg 3 times a day for 30 days. The anti-inflammatory effects take a full week before benefit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Telemedicine: Healhtap is a free-public website which allows age-appropriate use, but has a secure-feature to allow patient to communicate privately with a particular physician, who can privately comminicate with you and may prescribe medication for you, especially if you are in the same state/geographic location. Some docs do this, some don't. Finding a good, trusting personal physician is hard. Good luck. ...Read more

Chronic itching & fissure in perianal area, tried fluzan, doxepin, trental (pentoxifylline) pills & mycoster, cicalfate creams nothing worked.Any new stuff other cures?
Psoriasis?: Perianal psoriasis, lichen planus and other derm conditions can occur, lead to some of the above. May not be primary fissure, or fungal (what you have been rx'd for based on med list).

Which is more effective and common treatment for internal hemorrhoids inflammation: canasa 1000 mg suppository or anusol hc 2.5% cream. Thanks.
Canasa/Anusol: To treat internal hemorrhoid, i would recommend Anusol Hc 2.5% cream instead of canasa. Canasa enema is used to treat inflammation on the left side of the colon in ulcerative colitis. Suggest high fiber diet with diet supplement (goal of 25-30 grams per day), adequate hydration, avoid straining, avoid soap at anal area. If all failed, hemorrhoidal banding or other modalities. ...Read more
