Resee your MD. Resee your MD to check for improvement. Did you receive any medications. Make sure you are not constipated, as this will aggravate hemorrhoids. You may need something like miralax (polyethylene glycol) or another stool agent. If you are not improving, you should see a colorectal doctor for completeness.
