"I've had internal and external hemorrhoids for about 20 years now. They flare up about once a month. When I
have a flare-up, I'm afraid to go out. It's very painful and sometimes there's blood. I'd just rather stay home.
I feel alone—like I can't tell anyone."
"A few years ago, they got so bad I finally had to talk to my doctor. He explained me the options and told me about PREPARATION H®."

"When the pain gets to be too much, I sometimes put an ice pack down there until the swelling goes down."
"During the day, I use PREPARATION H® Maximum Strength Pain Relief Cream. Sometimes I use it four times a day. At night, I use PREPARATION H® Suppositories and that helps my internal and external hemorrhoid symptoms."
"Cleanliness is a big issue and extra wiping with dry tissue can irritate my skin. I like PREPARATION H® Medicated Wipes to avoid irritation."
"By taking care of myself and using PREPARATION H® throughout the day, I have seen a big difference in my symptoms. Last month, I was even able to attend my grandson’s birthday party without constantly worrying about the pain and itching."
