Oh my days I am in pain!
I can't sit comfortably I can't stand comfortably. I don't know how I'm going to sleep. Everywhere feels swollen and uncomfortable. I cannot find any haemorrhoid cream. I have however found hydrocortisone 2.5% cream. Will that help? What else will help. Someone help me please. I can't get to a chemist/shop until at least 4 tomorrow
A quick google says it’s in anusol so should help. Take some paracetamol too. I hope you find relief soon!
Anusol plus HC ointment and suppositories (zinc oxide, bismuth oxide, balsam peru, hydrocortisone)
Is hydrocortisone cream 2.5 good for hemorrhoids?
This medication is used to treat minor pain, itching, swelling, and discomfort caused by hemorrhoids and other problems of the anal area (e.g., anal fissures, itching). Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid that reduces redness, itching, and swelling.
