Postpardom hemorrhoids

Ugh it hurts and is itchy (maybe tmi) i just had a baby a few days ago and was told i had a small hemorrhoid from pushing. The dr gave me a script for some cream to help but it only stops the pain and itching for a little while and is messy too.
I can feel it move inside for a few hours but as soon as i lift something or move to much it comes back out.

Just wondering how long this will last and what you can do to help the pain and itching?

  • witch hazel pads are great, you can wipe with them, or use them like you would a pad if the discomfort lasts a while.
