In brief: Yes
Most come with an applicator to get the cream an inch or two inside the anus where internal hemorrhoids are located.

In brief: Depends
Most prescription meds used to treat hemorrhoids can be used both internally and externally.
I would be cautious of over the counter meds unless the label/instruction specifically approve for internal use.
