I can understand your pain and discomfort. Hemorrhoids occurs in many patients

In this condition veins around anus will stretch and bulge. It mainly occur due to straining during bowel movements.

Coming to traetment part, Preparation H suppositories is a good thing for hemorrhoids. It gives soothing relief from internal swelling, burning and itching. Lidocaine reduces the pain. Take warm water baths (sitz baths) and ice it.

If symptoms are severe then it is advised to go for a surgery. Hemorrhoid surgery is safe and effective most of the time. But after care is very essential.
