Hello Dr.:
My anus hurts from hemorrhoids any time I pass stool. I use preparation H suppository at night and hydrocortisone cream during the day. I also use metamucil as stool softner. Will Hem Relief help?

I read carefully all your concerns and I strongly suggest to avoid constipation.

So I would recommend take plenty of water, use foods reach in fibers and has physical activity.

With regards to Hem relief you can use 3 pills per day for 5-7 days.

At the end i strongly suggest to consult a proctologys for this problem.

Hope you find this helpful

All the best
