The cream does come with a nozzle so that you can get cream inside you but that can be very messy so I would advise you to use the suppositories and just use the cream on the outside before bed.</p><p> </p><p>I hope this helps, and don't worry, there are more people in this worls with haemorrhoids than without them!</p><p> </p><p>With my very best wishes</p><p>Mel.</p>

they are on out side does it still mean i have hemroids thankyou for your help

you can have internal or external piles, the most common being external although it is possible to have both. What they actually are is little pockets of blood and then you strain to have a bower action the pressure increases the blood within them and they swell and cause itching and pain.

The cream and suppositories will help you.
