In brief: Diet and fluids

In general eating a high fiber diet and more importantly, drinking 80-100 ounces of non caffeinated, non alcoholic fluid per day, more if excercising vigorously, should be adequate enough to keep your hemorrhoids quiet.
If in doubt or not successful instituting above, get them checked by a colorectal surgeon.

In brief: Seek medical attenti

Seek medical attention if otc corticosteroid agents do not bring the swelling down.
For the meantime try not to irritate the area.
