Hemorrhoid NOT shrinking anymore!!

Hi, I posted before in regards of my first hem. I've received conforting answers and followed advice. However it's been almost 4 weeks since it appeared. In a couple of days it got around the size of a nickle, and it started shrinking slowly. I was feeling good thinking in a couple of days it wouldn't be there anymore. However it's been over a week that it hasn't reduced in size. It's a little smaller than a pea now. It's just not shrinking anymore. I've done the baths and all, still been avoiding going to the toilet unless completely necessary... I'm just fed up. I'm starting to have doubts again if it will ever go away. What else can I do? Maybe this is something else? It feels like a small bead is trapped inside when I touch it. Doesn't itch, doesn't hurt. I can even push it in (yes, I've also tried that). Is it normal??

Sorry I'm being annoying with my questions, but I'm really desperate.

If the hemorrhoids are still small and do not cause any problems, oral medications and an ointment applied on them would be helpful. You can apply proctosedyl ointment or preparation H. Having a high fiber diet and increasing water intake would also help.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hi, if its balloned, then it still has some blood inside. Try the prescription cream 2.5% cortizone called proctozone. Ask you doctor about this.
