Main thing is that you need to take care of your constipation
User :   sure
Doctor :  
since chronic constipation can lead to hemorrhoids and other complication slike fissure, bleeding etc

so take diet rich in fiber like whole grains, wheat, banana, fruits , vegetables, oats

avoid junk foods which are less in fiber
Doctor :  
Drink atleast 2 liters of water daily

eat a banana in the night to make your stools soft

you apply the cream for one week

if still the swelling is not reducing or if you get pain

then you need to get examined by a surgeon
