If they are infact hemmies and you're not getting them better with OTC stuff you should see your doc about them...never know, they could be perianal crohns skin tags...I'm always leary when a UCer asks about hemmie help only because I know my perianal crohns skin tags were mistaken for hemmies and ever since that my life has changed for the worse.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

and I'll add that it could possibly be a yeast infection as well. Canesten cream would help.

Are you talking internal or external hemorrhoids?

*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~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 !!!
