Hi and sorry the late reply. See your doctor, they have a 2.5% cortizone cream that will help your tremendously.
Time to see a doctor I guess? Try the cortizone cream and it might be a bit of stereotype but watch your diet especially after the holiday treats. For me also tea tree oil on a cold cloth helped. I had this problem for many years at the beginning of january...If it doesn't help, ask your doctor if ligation might be an option for you. I had my hemorrhoids removed with thd and didn't have any problem ever since.
