I have a thrombosed external hemorrhoid and I am afraid to pass stool. What should I do?

Ice pack, soak: Try soaking in warm water and alternating with ice pack. Take a stool softener such as colace or milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Consider seeing a surgeon, who can remove the hemorrhoid. Don't hold your stool, which will only make it harder and more likely to hurt when you do pass it. ...Read more

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

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 more
