Examine the first picture in the link and the second pics under the first pics, then compare them to what you see on yourself to be sure it is infact hemmies that you are dealing with, because if it's the second picture that looks more like what you have then you should get into see a GI asap as the second pic (perianal crohns skin tags aka: elephant ears) are related to crohns disease and you do NOT want to get any kind of surgery on those.
Just wanted to chime in as I recently had a bout of hemorrhoids and looked at a lot of forums for help. Mine were quite painful and had bleeding associated with them to the point where I was concerned about being able to do sports, etc as I'm quite athletic.
I went and saw my doctor and he prescribed the following:
I also started using Tucks instead of toilet paper.
2 weeks on, I'm completely cleared up.
My sense is the best treatment is prevention - basically avoid strain, and be gentle on the rectal area and that will really help. Definitely don't want to minimize the trauma that those with severe cases have, but I think doing these things would avoid a lot of cases.
Good luck to all struggling with this...
