Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.This is likely a swollen inflamed hemorrhoid.You should follow a high fiber diet and take a stool softener daily to keep your stool soft.Metamucil and Senna tablets can be together for better action.Sitz bath is recommended for possible hemorrhoid treatment.Sitz bath is a bowl of warm water to sit on to relax the anal muscles and improve blood circulation in the hemorrhoids.Anusol HC rectal cream a combination of lidocaine and hydrocortisone can be used 3 times daily to reduce swelling and pain.Please also see your doctor for clinical evaluation.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for asking further questions!This is the link to my profile:
