Re: Hemorrhoids

After the birth of my first son, what worked for me was (1) sitz baths several times a day (one in the AM and one in the PM, IIRC); (2) every time I went to the toilet putting a dab of dibucaine cream on a Tucks witch hazel pad and wearing it (well, tucking it in) until I next had to use the bathroom; and (3) sitting on an inflatable donut (or sometimes my nursing Boppy). Good luck, mama, I remember breaking down crying at my post partum visit because of the incredible pain. The roids went away after a couple of weeks.
