In brief: Depends
Mostly women have residual skin tags following hemorrhoid flares during pregnancy as a result of constipation and straining.
The tags are benign and i don't recommend removing them. True hemorrhoid problems should be avoided by a good high fiber diet and drinking lots of fluids and preferably non alcoholic, non caffeinated fluids.

In brief: Time helps
Hemorrhoids get attention following the intense push often associated with vaginal childbirth.
High fiber diet, maintaining regular bms and avoiding straining will help with time. Irritation can be improved with steroids, and other topical agents. Spasm and pain is helped with sitz baths. There are various ways to treat, and the last resort is surgery, but they're treated, usually never cured.
