Prep H ointment · Taken for 10 years or more · June 12, 2022

For Hemorrhoids "I purchased a new tube of Prep H ointment this week. This product has definitely changed for the worse! HORRIBLE burning! I have used Prep H for 25+ years w/relief but NO more! 1) I Compared the ingredients from a couple of old tubes to new tube & most of the active ingredients flip flopped to the inactive ingredients & vice-versa 2) purchased an expensive oversized box with a small tube inside-deceiving marketing 3) internal insert tube is approx 75 %smaller. What's even worse is--As a patient I have sense not to use it anymore BUT as a caretaker using this on the elderly invalids in ill health that can not speak for themselves, If this is being used in nursing homes... It needs to be re-evaluated. If these new or flip flopped ingredient %s have changed & caused this burning please research why this happened. If others are having this problem, please speak up & give a review."

For Hemorrhoids "My problem was affecting my work and livelihood. Out of desperation, I started trying different anal medication. I probably should have seen a doctor right, but this is embarrassing. Preparation H has given me hope. I guess I have hemorrhoids?"
