Suggest medication for pain due to external hemorrhoids during pregnancy

Hi. I m 20 weeks pregnant with my first baby at 30 years old, from Phil. I feel too much pain having external hemorrhoids especially when I poop. My ob advice me to apply faktu ointment twice a day but it s my 4th days now since I started applying but I feel no effect at all. Please advice me something more to do to ease the pain I ve been going through. Thank you very much.

Hello, visit a surgeon and get yourself properly examined. Take syrup duphalac twice a day to soften your stools so that they don't pout out during defecations.
But in case this all don't help then you will need local sclerosing agent injections into the piles.
In case you have any questions in future you can contact me directly on
