JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a doctor about the lumps?

no i dont want to call

What was the cream you were given?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it was called anusol

How long did you use that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ive only used it once
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
as ive only used it once it went away and i went toilet again after it went and the lumps came back

These are obviously just simple hemorrhoids and nothing serious

You need to apply the cream twice a day for two weeks and also take a tablespoon of olive oil orally twice a day to soften your stool

With that you should be able to get rid of them within two weeks

Please let me know if you need any more information
