I have a natural approach to preparation H and the like: Put a banana in the fridge for a few hours...then take a small part of the peel and put it on the offending area. I have read that some people have horrible hemorrhoids, and when they do this for a while, they go away and never come back.
I have had luck with all sorts of skin issues using a banana peel. I got a bad sunburn on my back in NC, rubbed a banana peel all over before I went to bed and woke up in NO PAIN!!! My back wasn't as red, but felt really dry, of course. There are nutrients in the peel that are wonderful for burns, rashes, contusions etc.
If you try it and it works, please update!
