User:is it serious
Doctor:As the last time, this problem will also improve with plenty of fluids and high fibre food such as figs, green leaves and vegetables.
Doctor:If the pain is severe now, you can consider applying topical agents such as Smuth hemorrhoidal cream.
Doctor:It should be applied into the anal canal before and after passing stools.
