Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

This is a Hemorrhoid - they are very common in pregnancy - and to HELP with the pain/ hemorrhoid - you need to use a cream that has Hydrocortisone - you should be able to get this without a prescription.

Dr Owen :

Also, this is NOT going to affect the baby - so please do not worry about this.

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

Hi

Dr Owen :

Customer:

thou i hard an infection before i got pregnant could it be the cause

Dr Owen :

no - infections usually do not come in this area - what you have is a hemorrhoid - this is a VERY common reason and cause for this

Customer:

But it was treated.

Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

but what I am saying is that Hemorrhoids ARE EXTREMELY common in pregnancy - and using Hydrocortisone is what you need

Customer:

Dr Owen :

yes, hydrocortisone is a cream and you can buy this without a prescription

Dr Owen :

and you can use it 2 to 3 times per day

Dr Owen :

and this cream will help with the swelling, growth and pain you are having

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

Dr Owen :

Dr Owen :

This is a Hemorrhoid

Customer:

Dr Owen :

you want to Shrink it

Dr Owen :

you do not want to remove this - because this is a swelling of a vein

Dr Owen :

and hence the hydrocortisone will shrink the swelling of this vein

Customer:

can it be removed completely

Dr Owen :

If you want it to - but that is really unnecessary

Dr Owen :

but you can always have surgery for this

Surgery is NOT something a doctor going to do when you are Pregnant UNLESS something is life threatening

This is something that YOU JUST need to use hydrocortsone
