I developed a hemorrhoid a week after giving birth and I've had it two weeks! I can't sleep at night. Sitting up seems to help for some reason. The dr. called in a foam called Proctofoam and told me to take colace and do sitz baths a few times a day with really really salty water.

I'm taking Motrin, soaking a cloth in epson water and then laying down with it for a few minutes a few times a day, using the proctofoam, using hydrocortisone, using prep H. Taking colace and metamucil.

Any other thoughts? I'm going to loose my mind this is soooo painful. I'm calling the dr. again on monday and see if they can call me in any other medications.

Simple is best. Witch Hazel on a cotton pad between the cheeks while laying down. If you had an episiotomy, I don't know if I would do it though, might sting but it is an astringent.

i had one a few months ago and i ended up in the ER with it, becuase it was so painful, I had to have it lanced open, and even after i had that done, and got a medicated cream and colace it still took 3 weeks to go away.... best of luck to you!

My nurse advised me to use a Tucks pad in between my cheeks and sleep with it in there for a night. It contains witch hazel so you can use either that or the straight witch hazel on a cotton pad the same way. I think it should be fine for the peri tearing if you have that as well. Many of the doulas/midwives that I talked to said this helps with tearing as well. Also drink a lot of water and maybe some veggie juice.
