Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you are having a rectal problem. Hemorrhoids are painful when they are external, which is what you are describing, If you have access to a bidet, using that to clean after a bowel movement will help relieve the pain. If no bidet, then sitting in a tub of warm water will also help reduce the swelling and pain. The over the counter medications like Preparation H do little to resolve the issue. May I suggest a visit to your doctor who may be able to perform a "banding" in the office to get rid of them. Also increase your fiber and water intake. This will help to soften and bulk up your stool for easier passage.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
Were you able to schedule an appointment with your doctor for a banding procedure?
