In brief: Bed rest
Ice packs and warm tub soaks and should resolve in 48-72 hours.
Then avoid recurrences by avoiding constipation or diarrhea.

In brief: Yes
Stool softner, sitz bath, preparation h or steroid based ointment like proctosol would help.
If pain which is the most common symptom, i suggest you have it checked with a surgeon for possible drainage. Good luck.
