    Both my GP and OB told me not too as that can make the inflammation worse. It probably depends on the size/number of them 😒

    OP I know what you are going through and it's pretty horrible.
    I found ice to relief the pain and my Gp advised to lay on my side

    Really? hm I have never spoken to my gp/ob about them, I've just gotten rid of some bloody (pun intended) ones, if they come back I might try medication as suggested above as these ones hung around for ages

    Probably cause mine were quite big. I was crying in pain which is why I addressed it with my OB/GP. Bloody baby was pushing in the wrong areas hence making them really bad.
    They all went away after baby was born though

    I'm sure you're all dying to know the state of my poor bottom but thanks to you, I got soov, anusol and witch hazel and I am feeling MUCH more comfortable. They really are horrendous buggers!

    I had one a few months ago. I tried the cream but it didn't entirely resolve the problem so my gp snipped out the clot. The local anesthetic was the worst part and recovery fine. I just got some bum wipes to make wiping gentler. Hopefully you won't get to that stage but if you do it can be dealt with fairly readily. (And a walk in the park after what you've been through, except for that whole showing the doctor your butt).
