No. You should not use salicylic acid cream.
Hemorrhoids / piles are painful, swollen veins in the lower portion of the rectum or anus. Over-the-counter corticosteroid creams can reduce pain and swelling. Hemorrhoid creams with lidocaine can reduce pain. Witch hazel (applied with cotton swabs) can reduce itching. Talk to your pharmacist for advice.
