In brief: No

Hemorrhoid cream decreases the inflammation of the hemorrhoid, which is a dilated vein.
It does not destroy the vein or eliminate it. They can recurr again if the patient strains, has hard stools, has constipation, pregnancy , and other causes. There are some surgical options for hemorrhoid removal. Consult a proctologist for these options.

In brief: No

Most hemorrhoid preparations soothe or help relieve inflammation but don't make them go away.
External hemorrhoids usually shrink over time into little tags; internal ones can swell up with straining or anything that increases pressure on the veins in the area.
