Hi Thank you for posting the follow up.
I saw the pictures.
It looks like an External haemorrhoid.
You should take high fiber diet, drink plenty of liquids, eat fresh fruits and vegetables. You should avoid Alchohol, Non vegetarian food.
Your stool should be soft.
You can wait for 3 weeks to see the response.
If there is no improvement, please consult your Surgeon, get examined clinically and proceed accordingly.
