Amazon users who have been unfortunate enough to have had hemorrhoids but fortunate enough to have used this product say that “This product works wonders...  Just had baby #2 and used this product for both my pregnancies-- mostly for post-partum care. Let me tell you, it will make you feel a bit better and relieved despite how crappy you may feel during those moments. This product sure helps with hemorrhoids and post delivery care (especially if you tear or have an episiotomy done). It offers soothing, cooling, anti-itch and anti-inflammatory care;” “This product works well to soothe the external Hems and to clean the area without causing any irritation, which is helpful for managing the pain associated with hems.”


On the other hand, someone commented that “It felt good but didn't seem to help the actual problem. You could just as easily buy a bottle of Witch Hazel and pour it on some T.P. and get the same, but cheaper, effect.” Just ask your doctor whether that would really be the same.


These home medical supplies are for external use only. Do not use more than directed unless advised to do so by a physician. Do not apply directly in the rectum with bare fingers or any device or applicator. Stop using and talk to a doctor if there is rectal bleeding or if the condition does not improve or worsens within a week. Store at 68-77 F (20-25 C).


  • When feasible, clean the affected area with mild soap and warm water, and rinse meticulously.
  • Gently pat or blot dry with toilet tissue or a soft cloth.
  • Apply externally on the affected area up to six times or following each bowel movement.
  • Dispose of pad after application.
