Anyone experiencing hemorrhoids?

I am wondering who else is experiencing hemorrhoids. If I didn't have this issue, I think I'd be doing pretty well.  Doctor doesn't want me to use any type of cortisone meds down there as it would thin out the skin and cause me to have issues with my rectal muscle and tissue and having a tight bum hole is very essential to dealing with J-pouch.  What is everyone doing to address issues with hemorrhoids ?

I had surgery to remove them but it was incredibly painful and they eventually recurred.
Please please try BALNEOL.  $18.99 @ CVS.  If you put it on at night and can let it sit for a few hours without wiping off, the h-roids will begin to heal.  It is far far better than Prep H, witch hazel or anything else.  I can't stress enough how much the product has changed my life 7 yrs after six jpouch surgeries including removal of my rectum.  I only wish I knew about it from the beginning.

When I did have  hemorroid problems, and sometimes still do, I was prescribed Metrogel 1% and it worked for me. It's a topical gel. Don't know if it has cortisone in it though. I actually let a coworker try it that seems to have hemorroids somewhat regularly and he really liked it and is going to ask his doctor for a prescription.
