Hi Anon!

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER with your question!

While you probably do have hemorrhoids, you should consult a health care professional to get a proper diagnosis so that you are treating what you have, not what you think you may have.

We have an article on home remedies here: http://www.empowher.com/hemorrhoids/content/home-remedies-hemorrhoids?page=0,0

If these don't work you may need something stronger that your doctor can help with.

I hope you feel better soon. I know the discomfort of hemorrhoids and feel your pain.
