Hi Doctor,
I have an external hemorrhoid that hurts. I got it 3 days ago and it is getting bigger.
I put Vaseline on it but the pain is still there. No blood comes out from it. I never had this before. Never!!
I don't know what to do to get rid of it. Any suggestions please?
Thank you

Hello I'm Dr Chip

For now you can apply 1% over the counter cortisone cream twice a day for this

If that doesn't help, prescription anusol HC suppositories will

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you Doctor. How can I get the prescription of anusol HC suppositories?Thanks again

My pleasure

You'd have to see your doctor for that but the hydrocortisone cream alone should take care of your problem
