Yes, they have here in the states a 5-ASA rectal med called Rowasa or elsewhere Salofalk enemas. They treat up to the sigmoid section of the colon. I found that they don't control swelling of piles though. I can't use the standard 5-ASA's or mesalamines anymore so I have to use the steroid enemas. I found that they treat my internal hemmie pretty effectively as well as control my rectal symptoms. If you don't want to go the steroid route, you can use a 5-ASA enema and maybe if it doesn't help with the pile ask the doc for a steroid suppository. There is no side effects from that type of steroid.
