There are topical drugs and oral drugs, and topical drugs include suppositories and ointments.

Suppositories are useful for internal hemorrhoids and ointments for external hemorrhoids.

Steroid-containing drugs often show marked effects during the period of acute inflammation with strong swelling, pain, and bleeding, but long-term use should be avoided because tinea may occur in rare cases.

Those containing tribenecid or bromelain are effective in relieving inflammatory edema, those containing local anesthetics are effective in relieving pain, and killed E. coli suspensions are effective in wound healing.
