I have also had some recent issue with proctitis and painful hemmroids.  Does anyone know any miracle cures for these problamatic issues.

~UC meds: Asacol (3 @ 2x daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance 
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma) 
~vitamins/minerals/supplementsProbiotics....(RenewLife Ultimate Flora Critical Care + Primadophilus Reuteri). @ bedtime

All I have been given is some hydorcortisone cream.  I just didn't know if there was anything out there better to shrink them and decrease irritation.

are you on any for UC?

Are your hemmies internal or external?

You could ask the doctor for some Proctocedyl ointment or suppositories....the supps work for internal hemmies.

The thing that worked best on my hemmies (external that I got when I was giving birth, then got worse due to diarrhea from UC) was cortisone cream.

Diagnosed with pancolitis on 1/30/09
Currently taking Apriso (4 pills ONCE!! daily), Rowasa twice weekly, Natural Factors Ultimate probiotic 12/12 Formula, and Zoloft (25 mg).
