Customer Question

Hi,

I am 40 week pregnant on Tuesday. Yesterday I developed hemorrhoid which today got quite big and full of blood. I took a photo of it and it looks pretty nasty. I am waiting for my gp to call back and will see what he say, although I am worried that over the phone he might not take this to seriously. I used Anusol cream since yesterday but it doesn't seem to do anything. I don't think emergency will take me in also as I can deliver baby any time, what should I do?
