Hi Doc, can I use astroglide for my internal hemorrhoids to push them back and is it safe will it help it?

In brief: Hemorrhoids

Astroglide would certainly be a safe lubricant to use, but it is unlikely to help with your hemorrhoids very much.
Hemorrhoids are usually caused by constipation, so it's important to eat a lot of fiber, drink water, and take stool softeners to avoid straining. You can also use Prep H and other OTC meds. If no relief, see your PCP for further care.
