In brief: Hemorrhoids

If the hemorrhoids are on the outside, you can use preparation H cream. If they are in the inside, you will need a suppository like preparation H or anusol.
You should avoid constipation so that the hemorrhoids don't recur. Your doctor can do an anoscopy in the office to determine the size of hemorrhoids. If there is partial blockage sensation, you might want to consider a colonoscopy.
