Comments about CVS Hemorrhoidal Ointment:
It is NOT an urban myth that hemorrhoid products function well as facial moisturizers. **CVS Hemorrhoidal Ointment** and other U.S. kin, however, no longer do. Why? Because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided that the ingredient *Bio-Dyne* didn't really contribute to the efficacy of this product.*****
That means that if you purchase **CVS Hemorrhoidal Ointment**, you'll have to use it to relieve the itching and shrinking of hemorrhoids. Period. You can use the accompanying applicator for internal application (replacing the suppositories some folks use) *and/or* you can smooth it on externally to quell the general discomfort of swollen hemorrhoids.
**CVS Ointment** is a generic comparable to *Preparation H Ointment* and quite a bit less expensive. I've used both and find them equally effective. The **CVS** * **Active Ingredients *include: *Mineral oil 14% *as a Protectant;* Petrolatum 71.9%, *also a Protectant;* Phenylephrine HCI 0.25%, *a Vasoconstrictor;* and Shark liver oil 3.0%, *another Protectant.* *
*Inactive Ingredients *are:* Beeswax, Benzoic Acid, BHA, Corn Oil, Glycerin, Lanolin, Lanolin Alcohol, Methylparaben, Microcrystalline Wax, Paraffin, Propylparaben, Purified Water, Thyme Oil, *and* Tocopherol.*
**CVS Hemorrhoidal Ointment** may be applied four times a day. If you anticipate any indiscreet scratching of your itch before the **Ointment** takes hold, I'd recommend applying it at bedtime. The primary ingredients can leave oil stains if you scratch *or* if you apply **CVS Ointment** too generously!
