Thrombosed external hemorrhoid burst and released clot, during bowel movement, followed by light bleeding. How should I care for it?

Petroleum jelly. keep stools soft with fruits/dark green vegetables, prunes and prune juice and similar. less white flour products,. use petroleum jelly or antibiotic ointment to keep it soothed and help healing/passage of stool . ir red or pus or inflamed or starts bleeding a lot see proctologist or g.i. dr. take naproxyn or ibuprofen and acetaminophen for pain , can take acetaminophen with others . as directed.
Sitz Baths. (Old fashioned BUT VERY EFFECTIVE) Sit in a tub with hot water...be careful not to burn yourself..... It helps both the discomfort and promotes healing and avoiding infection! Hope this helps! Dr Z.
