Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician and I am happy to help you. Are you experiencing any pain or pus like discharge from the hemorrhoids?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No pus - just some blood when I wipe after pooping. No much pain / just a tiny bit.
Pediatrician: Richard Han, Board Certified Pediatrician replied 8 months ago

Thank you for that info. No need to apply any antibiotic then. Hemorrhoids typically do not get infected, just a little inflamed and itchy. You can apply some over the counter hemorrhoid remedies which typically contain some mild steroid. That helps block the itch and shrink them down a little. Can I help with anything else today?

I'm in Austria - so I'm not sure what over the counter Hemorrhoid treatments I'll have access too. So no need to worry about the small amount of bleeding? Would applying Neosporin or using antiseptic spray be a bad idea?
Pediatrician: Richard Han, Board Certified Pediatrician replied 8 months ago

No need to worry about a little bleeding from hemorrhoids, correct. Applying the antibiotic/antiseptic would not be a bad idea per se, but probably won't be of much benefit either. Anything else I can help with?

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.
