I was a little hesitant in purchasing this product because of some of the reviews that people have left. I decided to go ahead and give it a try. Purchasing this item was the best thing I could have done. I had bleeding hemorrhoids and they were talking about doing surgery to remove them. Within 2-3 days of using the product my hemorrhoids have shrunken about 90% and the bleeding has seized. I'm looking forward to calling the doctors to let them know that I will not be needing the surgery. It doesn't hurt to just try the product to see how it may work for you.

After a few days of suffering, I finally broke down and purchased PH instant. It’s expensive, but really works. Within 5 or 10 minutes I had lasting relief. No more discomfort while sleeping and woke to find the swelling down. Would not hesitate to purchase again.

Calms the flaming shards of glass

Mama2be - 1 year ago
This made passing stools bearable. I have struggled with hemorrhoids for about six years and I usually have a pretty bad flareup about once a year. It feels like I am trying to pass flaming shards of glass. This is the ONLY thing that has given me a semblance of relief. Better than the prescription lidocaine cream I was given. I no longer fear constipation due to the incredible pain. Now, if you just have a little hemorrhoid that isn’t trying to kill you, regular Preparation H will probably be fine.

DianaLu - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
This cost me $25 for ONE OUNCE and you have to squeeze that one ounce through a teeny, tiny hole - good luck getting your money’s worth. (The cap is childproof, too.) Could Target make this any more of a pain to use? So, NO, stay away from this product - better to buy clean, thick pads, pure aloe and witch hazel and make your own hemmerhoidal Ice Packs. (See Youtube) Good luck!

Works great. Can’t give it 5 stars because the cap is cumbersome and difficult and the price compared to all the other P-H products seems ridiculous.
