No need to put any ointment. ...Read more

Would oral prednisone help a thrombosed external hemorrhoid that's failed tx w/ hc suppositories & cream? What's best for pain control?

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 more
