I am sorry you are suffering from hemorrhoids.
soften the stool with extra fiber in your diet, and eating prunes and taking metamucil and drinking more fluids and also using stool softeners like colace can help
using over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream on the hemorrhoids over 1-2 weeks can help shrink them
if these methods don't work, you have to see a doctor for stronger steroid creams and steroid suppositories to help shrink your hemorrhoids.
if that doesn't work, you have to see a surgeon to be considered for surgery to cut out the hemorrhoids.
have you tried to eat more fiber in your diet or use stool softeners before?
