In brief: Sure its hemorrhoid?

We are born with hemorrhoid tissue so it really never "goes away" You probably have a skin tag that is caused by repeated hemorrhoid swelling and therefore will not shrink away with any medicine.
You really should have a provider look at it to make sure it is not something else though

In brief: Hemorrhoid issues

One thing that comes to mind is if what you are feeling is something else besides a hemorrhoid, which means that hemorrhoid cream might not work.
One thing that i can think of is a skin tag which would not respond the hemorrhoid therapy. Follow up with your primary care physician so they can evaluate you and determine the cause for you "non healing hemorrhoid" hope this helps.
