(Question from another site)

I have hemorrhoids for like one week now in first days i noticed swelling and bump it was hurting and itching. I went to doctor because of that and he gave me some creams and antibiotics, also i am doing baths.

I don’t have pain and itching 2 days now. I have not seen a bleed too but its swollen still. How long does it need to be fully resolved? Or does it resolve fully? Thanks

(My answer)

Stick with the creams that the dr gave you and the baths and it shouldn’t take more than 2 weeks to go if it’s a low grade hemorrhoid. Also DO NO SCRATCH IT IF IT’S ITCHY. At one stage I had itchy hemorrhoid and scratched them daily because it was the most satisfying scratch. Turns out it was making it way worse and it stuck around for months longer.
