Thankyou for contacting HCM.

For External hemorrhoids syp. cremaffin is quite helpful as it relieves constipation which is the one of the causative factor.
for pain you can apply lignocaine gel before and after passing stool around your anus.
I would also recommend sitz bath i.e sitting in a tub of warm water for 15 mins daily....this helps in hygiene and promotes healing.
Meanwhile increase your intake of fluids, fruits and vegetables.

I hope this answers your query. Please feel free to contact HCM again if you have any concerns.
Wishing you good heath.
