Symptoms:  Painful hemorrhoid
Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
You have a history of pain and it looks you are thinking that this may be a hemorrhoid.

The commonest cause of pain at the anus is fissure in ano.
I would advise you in such a situation the following:
- Get an opinion of a General Surgeon first to have a proper diagnosis whether this is the prolapsed thrombosed hemorrhoid or an anal fissure.
- Get an appropriate treatment as advised by him.
In addition get this done:
- Sitz bath
Laxative
-Antibiotic and metronidazole.
Probiotics
These will help you along with the anti-inflammatory and painkillers.
All these things together help you.
Also, talk to your General Surgeon for a definitive treatment.

Hope this helps you.
