But then, make sure that the soft toilet tissues are well soaked in witch hazel.

      I have tried EVERYTHING for relief of my Hemorrhoids from homeopathic remedies, nonprescription ointments as well as prescription creams. They all seemed to provide only temporary relief. When I tried Vicks Vapor rub for a reprieve of my symptoms, I received immediate gratifying relief. Pain was gone almost instantaneously and the vapors kept it cool. So glad I found out about this!!!

      I have tried it and it really works better than any other products labeled for hemorroids. If your butt is hot and burning the Vicks will cool it and the menthol helps to numb the area.
