    Comments about Preparation H Hemorrhoidal Ointment - 1 oz:

    Ok, this does work in the on hemorrhoids...but, let me tell you, this works great on bags under the eyes as well! I had heard that it can help and recently after a week of not sleeping I tried it for the dark, circle bags under my eyes and it worked wonders! I guess it basically works on an inflammed area. So, it's good to keep this in your medicine cabinet!
