Important information: Doctor Butler’s Hemorrhoid & Anal FIssure Ointment
DOCTOR BUTLER’S HEMORRHOID & FISSURE OINTMENT 7 STEP PLAN
TO “LEAVE THE PAIN BEHIND”
1. Apply Doctor Butler’s internally (and externally as necessary) before and after bowel movements and again at bedtime, up to 3 times daily.
2. Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily and follow a high fiber diet which includes whole wheat cereals, bran, fruits and vegetables. Try to avoid spicy foods, nuts, seeds, corn, popcorn, caffeine, milk and alcohol.
3. Use a “psyllium” bulking agent available at grocery stores.
4. Drink 2 Tablespoons of mineral oil daily as a lubricant (for 2 weeks only since it has been known to decrease vitamin absorption when taken long term).
5. Between applications of Doctor Butler’s Hemorrhoid & Fissure Ointment, the following options should be considered for specific conditions to “Leave the Pain Behind”
a. If you have a sudden onset of external hemorrhoids, soak cotton balls in comfortably warm witch hazel and apply for 15 minutes 3 to 4 times daily. For quick temporary relief from pain, consider applying a small amount of ointment containing menthol. Consider use of an ice pack or “Doctor Butler’s Orthopedic Memory Foam Seat Cushion” with cold gel insert.
b. For external irritation use a zinc oxide ointment and oatmeal “sitz” baths.
6. If using a wipe, it is beneficial to apply a thin layer of Doctor Butler’s Hemorrhoid & Fissure Ointment to the wipe. We recommend using Doctor Butler’s Organic Soothing Wipes which are Pure, Natural & Chemical Free.
7. If symptoms continue to persist, mix Doctor Butler’s Hemorrhoid & Fissure Ointment with an over the counter antibiotic ointment. Insert using a gloved finger.
a. If irritation occurs, stop external use and reduce the amount of Doctor Butler’s Hemorrhoid & Fissure Ointment being applied internally. If condition becomes worse, discontinue use.
b. More than 2 bowel movements a day can be a symptom of irritability which can create a high level of acidity. This can affect the ability to heal. Avoid caffeine, milk and excessive alcohol. Using an over the counter “anti-diarrhea” medication may reduce the frequency of bowel movements on a temporary basis.
Long standing external hemorrhoids represent skin which has been stretched over time. It’s a problem for some people since there is extra skin in the area which causes difficulty for proper hygiene. Doctor Butlers applied internally will shrink internal blood vessels which actually cause external flare ups to begin. While Doctor Butler’s will prevent further progression in most cases, the only way eliminate chronic long standing stretched out skin is by removing it. Starting with Doctor Butlers when someone first notices symptoms will, in most cases, prevent this from occurring since tissue which becomes swollen and stays swollen becomes stretched out. Skin which is swollen from underlying dilated blood vessels will go back to normal, but only if treated early enough.
