Haemorrhoids produce varying degrees of pain, feelings of pressure, itching, irritation and a palpable mass. In women, the single most common cause is pregnancy. Because of its astringent qualities, this is also an excellent cream for itchy bites, etc. Weleda manufactures a suppository with similar active ingredients for internal use, Haemorrhoidal Suppositories. These are very effective too. You can use both together - the suppositories internally and this cream externally.
