  • I had hemorrhoids after giving birth to my son. My bottom was always soar and itchy. I went to the doctor and they told me I had this. I used a pad called witch hazel and kept them in my panties. It helps shrink it and eventually goes away.

  • I had them after giving birth to my daughter. They were uncomfortable for about 2 months (I think)......I didn't put anything on them but I always made sure that they were clean and dry. Good luck, they are not fun!!
