  • Yes, they can hurt & get an itchy burning feeling too. If it's really hurting & hot to the touch, or red, you should have it checked out to make sure you don't have a blood clot. I have had blood clots in my legs and it really hurts.

  • Yes, it is common for them to be painful, they are the same as hemorrhoids. A friend of mine just had hers lasered because of the pain, it was not a cosmetic procedure for her.
