There round small balls like hemerrhroids I have suffered from hemmerrrohois before but one at a time there's r several all around my anus... Is there something over the counter I can try ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

you can try 1% hydrocortisone cream once or twice a day on the area for 1-2 weeks.

that can help shrink and calm down inflammation from hemorrhoids.

if this doesn't work, you need to see a doctor to get stronger steroid creams.

you should also keep your stools soft with fiber, stool softeners or laxatives.

hard stools can worsen hemorrhoid swelling.
