I saw that you updated the site and added suppositories in the Treatments & Reviews page. Have you tried any other suppositories that have helped?

I personally have only tried the Diazepam suppositories for muscle relaxing but I know that suppositories with regular hemorrhoid medicine work better than cream for internal hemorrhoids. Here’s a good summary I found on Healthline.com:
Creams, ointments, and pastes are commonly applied to external hemorrhoids for temporary relief. These OTC and prescription treatments can ease burning, itching, or mild pain.
Suppositories are better for internal hemorrhoids. The medicine is absorbed by the rectal tissue and can help all discomfort and pain caused by hemorrhoids. They can sometimes soothe the symptoms caused by external hemorrhoids as well.
Suppositories are typically used two to four times per day for a week. It’s better if you insert after a bowel movement so the effect can last longer.
External creams and ointments can be applied whenever you need relief. However, the relief isn’t as long-lasting as that of a suppository. That’s because a suppository breaks down more slowly, releasing medication over a longer period of time.
Both topicals and suppositories should only be used for a limited time to prevent possible complications.
