Reviews for LMX 5
For Hemorrhoids "This cream works within a few minutes for pain from hemorrhoids. It is easy to use, a smaller than pea-sized dot of it is plenty, and tends to burn slightly for a minute or less, then pain is gone. The only drawback is it's effect doesn't last more than a couple of hours and it says not to exceed six applications in a day. It is pricey but it can be purchased without a prescription at any pharmacy. I suggest ordering before you need it because it usually has to be ordered and the wait can be...painfully long. I bought it to use to prevent electrolysis pain but so glad I had it when I had a flare up."
