    I've had painful, slightly bloody, external hemorrhoids for the last couple of days and have a few questions for anyone who's suffered from similar hemorrhoids.

    Did you have to do anything other than use over the counter ointment/cream and alter you diet to for more fibre?

    I'm not expecting significant relief for a few days - while using some ointment, and if it's still as bad next week I'll see my doctor (not sure who he/she is - I haven't been to a doctor in nearly 10 years). I've read that what I'm doing now (ointment and more fibre) is standard procedure.

    Also, is it worth buying a ring/donut cushion?
