External hemorrhoid, painful to walk, no bleeding. Will it heal on its own?

Hello, I m currently going through an external hemorrhoid phase and it s been extremely painful having to walk, sit and even sleep. I haven t experienced bleeding , however the area is swollen and painful to even touch. I ve been cleaning it with water, not wiping as hard as I normally would and have been avoiding my daily jogging. There has been mixed feelings regarding exercise through some of my research on external hemorrhoids . Should I wait a few days to see if it ll heal on its own or is consulting my family doctor a better idea? And if I were to wait, do you recommend certain sleeping positions to alleviate some of the pain and home remedies?

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It looks like that the haemorrhoids got thrombosed and/or infected.
It is better to have it examined by your doctor.
Sitz bath and pain relievers may help in the mean time.

Take care
Wishing you speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
