Hi Marty...can you use 5ASA retention enemas?

For the hemorrhoid, maybe using zinc ointment or lidocane?

Are you able to get in to see your doc soon? Maybe he'll take a look to see if there's anything else going on.

Hope you get relief soon.

~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~vitamins/minerals/supplements 
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

Have you tried Analpram HC cream? Double the dosage of ProctoFoam ,worked pretty well for me.

I was using a rectal cream that came in a tube that you applied internally for a while that worked pretty well.  It was a combo lidocaine HCL 3% with Hydrocortisone Acetate 0.5%. You could ask your doc about that one.  It was very soothing.
