OK....I know the responses are going to be a real mixed bag on this topic....but what the hell.....
On a serious note, more than half the world's population will develop hemorrhoids mainly after the age of 30. I've read that runners get them more than any other sport.
I think I got mine not only from the constant running but from the straining to crap before each race in high school.
In any case I have never done anything about them butt, am considering going to a doctor. What have others done?....any advice on successful medication?
