Do I need to go to urgent care
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 6 months ago

Thank you very much for all the information provided.

It definitely looks like you may have got an E coli secondary infection of the hemorrhoid . You should be on a short course of antibiotics and local cleansing with Normal Saline or Betadine.

You should also take tub baths or sit in a tub with warm water and Adding table salt, vinegar, or baking soda to the water can also create a soothing solution. But you may take a sitz bath using only warm water.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

If you can visit an ER it would be great as they will be able to examine you immediately .

What is going to stop the bleeding
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 6 months ago

The bleeding is due to infection .

The infection would be treated with the antibiotics and the bleeding would stop.

It would also stop if you take the Sitz bath as I have mentioned above.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
