Does Silver Sulfadiazine help in the treatment of hemorrhoids?

In 2012 I had a hemmroidectemy and since then the hemmroidectemy have come back even worse than what I started out with. Each time I have a bowel movement it seems as if I've had a heavy heavy period in the toilet. I've also had a hysterectomy so I know the bleeding is definitely not coming from my vagina. I've upped my fiber intake, I also use hemmroidectemy cream and suppositories as well as witch hazel pads. NOTHING works and it's extremely painful. I was just given Silver sulfadiazine cream and just wanted to know if this will alleviate the size of the hemmroids as well as the extreme pain. Thank you so much!!!

Hello,

Silver creams can provide some symptomatic relief but does not provide complete recovery. You can consult a general surgeon and plan for a surgery.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
