Doesn't work

This is the 3rd such product that I have tried and this is the only one that has had no effect whatsoever. It's like using extrememly expensive petroleum jelly.

    Comments about Americaine Hemorrhoidal Ointment, Maximum Strength, 1 oz:

    I'm diabetic & post-strokes, therefore, a lot of my medicines cause diarrhea. I needed something that was fast, effective & cheap. This 'fit the bill' & am very happy I found this product. It has the highest percentage of benzocaine available w/out a prescription. You can't go wrong w/this product.

        First learned about this stuff when my ex-wife has hemorriod surgery about 30 years ago. This is what the surgeon gave her when she came home. I've been using it ever since. Great product.

          Tried it years ago when another product was not available. Now only use this. I agree with other reviewer that it is a terrible shame that the major drug stores quit carrying it.

                Relief within ONE MINUTE; honest!!! The package is small and the tube is made of heavy-duty metal, which does not "squeeze" well, but the product is excellent.

                By the way, I clicked on "business" for the hell-of-it; how stupid of a question!!!

                      Americaine is a very poor product, it did nothing to ease the pain, i have found that Tronolane and gold bond medicated powders the name brand is the best relief for hemorrhoids or fissures, also the herb butcher's broom works very well, but this stuff is a WAST of MONEY
