Hemorrhoid issue?

I am a healthy 28 year old male and I believe that I developed a Hemorrhoid outside the anal area. Problem is I tried using ‘Preparation H’ cream and it didn’t help at all, in fact I would say it made it worse. So then I tried ‘Tucks Medicated Pads’ and also no result or relief.

Yesterday morning it started off as a slightly uncomfortable lump, and now it has progressed to a very painful and swollen bubble. It’s gotten to the point where I can barely get up or shift my position in a seat.

Anyway I guess my questions are: 1) Is this in fact a Hemorrhoid, or something worse? and 2) Should I continue to self-medicate with these items in hopes it will go away, or seek medical attention immediately?

Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can provide.

It looks like a hemorrhoid to me. (by the way, props for the pictures, most people wouldn't have the courage to do that). If neither of the over the counter treatments are helping and you are in a great deal of pain, and it sounds like you are. I would suggest going to a walk in clinic. They can tell you for sure, and perhaps perscribe you some treatments that might work better than the over the counter ones.

Good luck, I've been there, it isn't any fun at all.

Re: Hemorrhoid issue?

It sounds like a thrombosed hemorrhoid (blood clot) -- it will probably need to be lanced by a Doctor.
They are extremely painful-- as you know
