Any of you experience hemorrhoids while using enemas (rowasa).  If yes, how did you treat it.
My UC has been under control, and I've been using rowasa every other night.

You can either A) Use Prep H suppositories or cream during the day or B) Call your GI to see if he/she will prescribe steroid suppositories. I have an internal one and they can be quite uncomfortable especially when using rectal meds but when I go on rectal meds, I end up killing two birds with one stone. I can only use steroid enemas so it does double duty by reducing the inflammation in my colon as well as my hemmie.
