Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and Thank you for your question.

Hemorrhoids can be a very uncomfortable thing to deal with and can affect your daily life. There are many over the counter medications that can be used.
Corticosteroid creams to help reduce pain and swelling
Hemorrhoid creams with lidocaine to help reduce pain
Stool softeners help reduce straining and constipation
Witch hazel (applied with cotton swabs) can reduce itching.
Wear cotton undergarments.
Avoid toilet tissue with perfumes or colors, use baby wipes instead.
Try not to scratch the area.
Sitz baths can help you to feel better. Sit in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes

But if the symptom persist you should consult with your doctor.

Best of luck,
