In the past, I have had a flare up of hemmorhoids, went to the doctor and got some prescription strength hydrocortisone cream....they were very itchy and painful....
Last week I had constipation, and a very hard time having a bowel movement..I was straining and it was very painful, and my stools were very hard....this happened 2 or 3 times last week...Then over the weekend, I started having the itching and burning all day off and on,and soreness and pain when I did have another bowel movement...
Does this seem like the hemorrhoids acting up again? Is it true that once u have them, they never really go away unless u have surgery? I got the Tucks witch hazel wipes, and Prepartion H ointment, and did soak in warm water last nite...It seems to be maybe a little better, but I still have the itching off and on, and havent had a BM today, as I am scared it will be painful again! Today is the 3rd day I have noticed it and started treating it...Does anyone know how long it takes for it to get better and clear up, or anything else I can do? I really don't remember from last time, since it was awhile ago..
Thanks so much!
