At YouSave Chemist we're extremely proud of our knowledgeable team of pharmacists. Every day they're there to serve you and even take a moment to share that advice here on our blogs too. Recently one of our pharmacists shared with us a poem that made us smile. We thought to share it with you and hope you enjoy!

Hemorrhoids.

You just can't live with them.
They are painful,
They are not pretty
and they make you walk funny.

Some anecdotal suggestions -- ice.
Yes it does give good short term relief,
but could sting and remain painful.
So definitely, definitely talk to your doctor.

A plan that is more likely to help:
Apply the wet ice for 15 minutes, morning and night.
Dry off.
Apply Proctosedyl Ointment 2 - 3 times a day.

Additionally Daktozin can be applied thickly at night on top of the Proctosedyl.
Cover with soft shield, for example a pad or gauze.
Go to bed and have sweet dreams.
Good night.


So there it is. What do you think? Have you ever read, or written something quite as... quite as insightful? If you have we'd love to hear about it. Please leave your thoughts below. The YouSave team is always looking for things to inspire, educate and enjoy.
