Hemorroids, help!

Ok my daughter is two months old. I know my hemorroids developed from giving birth to her. Thankfully I did not have them during pregnancy. However they will not go away. They are so painful I fear going to the bathroom and am in tears when I do. My OB had said Noxema should do the trick but its not. I need them gone and fast. Anyone have any suggestions?

I just used the regular stuff in the yellow packaging. Are you having trouble going and need a softener? I've never had painful ones but they were itchy which is so embarrassing. I got them while pregnant and my old Dr said that once you get them, you're more prone to having them.

Colace has been helping me but man if I forget it... I cannot believe I am still dreading the bathroom almost three months after birth! This is nuts!

Oh I am on top of the colace/senna combo. I slacked off for a few days and I am paying for it. I wish they were just itchy. That I could totally deal with.

Senna is a laxative. They ofton do it in combination with colace.

I'm a scrather. Can you imagine being 35 years old and fighting the urge to scratch your behind! It makes me LOL at the image.

Sounds crazy but I had a terrible Hemorrhoid once and I read somewhere to eat berries. I think blueberries and blackberries work best. They are full of antioxidants and help reduce the inflammation. Worked wonders for me! Hope you feel better soon!!
