I know that hemorrhoids ointments are also anti-inflammatory so I see how natural witch hazel would help with it.
But wouldn't it also be too drying? That part of skin is very thin and sensitive so I think it might be irritating to use witch hazel.
Should I mix witch hazel and aloe vera gel as an ointment and apply it that way?
Has anyone tried using witch hazel for treating hemorrhoids topically? Did it work?
