Having hemorrhoids, painful and gross, getting large. Should i be concerned as it is not reducing?

Never had a hemorrhoid and now I have an extremely large one.. Almost boil like (it s about the size of small tangerine!). It s extremely painful and I ve been treating it for about 5 days and it s only gotten larger. It s painful and gross. Should I be concerned that its not reducing or because of the size it will only take longer?

hi your problem was due to swollen hemorrhoids that cannot go back to anus because of its swollen.once the swelling decreases it will automatically go should take regular anti inflammatory medicine as well as pain killers.At the same time you should take laxative so your stool passes easily & doesn't increases swelling.After passing stool you should sit in warm water for 5-10 minutes will help you a lot.
wish you a speedy recovery.
