In brief: Ice/heat & topical

Alternate ice and heat the first 24 hours, then heat only--sit in tub of moderately hot water. Apply topical medication containing cortisone.
Anti-inflammatory meds (ibuprofen, etc.) will help with the pain & swelling.

In brief: Easy fix

Hemorrhoids are simply dilated blood vessels in the anus that cause pain and bleed.
Most likely cause is from straining at bm's. Keep your stools soft by increasing fiber and avoiding foods that constipate you. For treatment, using medicated suppositories, or creams will help in the short term. Hot sitz baths can also reduce inflammation and pain.
