MEDICATIONS FOR HEMORRHOIDS
The usual medications involve an ointment to protect the skin with zinc oxide content or simple petroleum jelly. In certain cases creams that act as a local anesthetic are used so that the irritation or pain around the area can be reduced. Pain relievers like Tylenol and anti inflammatory drugs like aspirin are also used. Surgery is usually done as last option when hemorrhoids affect the lifestyle of the person or have become too painful with uncontrolled bleeding or pus in anus. Any and all medical professionals should and would suggest surgery only if the other methods of treatment have failed completely or have not been effective in reducing the severity of the problem.
Non steroidal drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen can help with reducing the swelling in the affected regions.
