The treatment of hemorrhoids is by warm sitz bath, avoiding straining, keeping the stools soft and local application of the ointment like proctosedyl or Preparation-H. Hemorrhoids which bleed often and unexpectedly will need further treatment by any of the following;

1) Rubber band ligation

2) Bipolar, infrared, and laser coagulation

3) Sclerotherapy

4) Cryosurgery

5) Laser hemorrhoidectomy

6) Doppler-guided hemorrhoidal artery ligation

7) Anal stretching or Lord's stretching.

You need to consult a general surgeon for the management.
