Distress in the Buttockal region

2500 miles of driving over 3 days has given me a pain in the butt. Maybe it was the 1200 miles in a Civic, regardless, for the third time in 13 years I have distress in the buttockal regoin in the form of a hemorrhoid. I don't even want to think about trying the bike with this going on. Any home remedies? Anyone ride with hemorrhoids?

Anusol suppositories and give them time to take effect. Haven't had the problem in years, but I did at one time.

See a Doc, get some Prep H, and don't stress over it. Try riding, if
it doesn't hurt you're fine. Pressure seems to help with me.

Just fold it over, sit on it and keep riding!

I know hurts buttockalittle about it. That can help, especially if we band together.
A Sitz bath can give some relief and Anusol is better than Prep H.
