In brief: Don't delay Rx

When chlamydia is strongly suspected, treatment (usually with azithromycin or doxycycline) should be given without waiting for test results.
Speak with your doctor about being treated now. Good luck!

In brief: Until

Until you see the doctor you can try some over the counter hemorrhoid medication.
There are many products in your local pharmacy dedicated to hemorrhoid treatment. These include creams that you apply to the rectum, medicated pads that can be placed over the anus, and rectal suppositories that can be inserted into the rectum. I recommend one of the first two choices until you can see the doctor. Also increase your fiber and water intake. Take care.
