[YEA] After suffering the past 6 weeks with a painful hemorrhoid, I finally found EarthClinic and the apple cider vinegar treatment. I have been in agony and tears the past few weeks. I have tried everything until today when I bought some ACV. I first poured about a cup of it in the bath along with warm water and immediately felt relief.
I was afraid to put it directly on the area, my skin is very sensitive anyway, so I first diluted a cotton pad with a little water and then soaked it in ACV. I felt a cooling sensation and it didn't burn at all. I got braver and then soaked the cotton pad in ACV and stuck it in my "area". I finished getting dressed and afterward felt a lot better, more so than anything I have tried. I also drank a bit diluted in water, it wasn't that bad. I will continue to drink this. I also think that my hemorrhoids were caused by the sugary, fattening holiday foods! I hope that this helps someone.
