[YEA] Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for the incredibly simple apple cider vinegar for hemmeroids.
I could barely bring myself to try it for fear of extreme pain on a huge (and I do mean huge) long hemmeroid.
Trying Prep H and others for small hemmeroids I thought it would work...not this time. The pain was all the way up in my spine and there was some bleeding. I was hoping it would break and be done with it, but no such luck.
I finally got up the nerve to try the vinegar. First I put it on some scratches that I got from cutting trees in my yard. It didn't burn. I tried putting it on my face a few hours after shaving....still no pain. I said to myself, what the heck...the worst thing I will have to do is go into the shower and get it off quickly.
I took some of the advice and put petroleum jelly on both sides of the hemmeroid. Then with a piece of cotton I soaked it in the ACV. Held my breath and then I put it on. NO PAIN whatsoever!!!!! Just cooling type of feeling.
Within a few minutes, I noticed the pain totally disappear. I was able to work on my house for the past two hours with no problem.
It is still swollen, but not to have the horrible, horrible pain I feel like a new person.
I will continue to use it for the next day or even week. If it all shrinks down and there are no side or after effects, you will not hear from me again.
If anything occurs that is out of the ordinary I promise to help others as you have helped me and let you know everything.
By the way, there is no bleeding either.
God bless you all and for this site. I thought I was going to have to get pain killers or go to the hospital. Whew! Thanks so much again. I am so happy.
