Horrible product that increased the pain!
16 March 2019
I was really disappointed with this product. Having previously always used a natural cream by Nelson's which used to work within a day to almost clear the symptoms completely, I was really dismayed to find that they had discontinued their HCare+. I wanted a natural product as the over the counter ones from the chemists never seem to help me much. I thought that this Hemosan cream would be similar to the Nelson's one I'd always used before. How wrong I was!
This product provided no relief whatsoever and actually increased the burning so much that I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't get back to sleep for hours as I was in so much pain. It claims to have a 7 way action - anti-inflammatory, healing, analgesic, emollient, venotonic, anti-edematous and astringent but I didn't experience a single one of those effects, apart from maybe the emollient, which could have been achieved with any other cheap cream like E45 or even some coconut oil.
Thankfully as a result of being up all night looking at the internet for something that could help, I've now discovered Tea Tree Oil pessaries by House of Mistry which you can buy on Amazon and so far, these have provided enormous relief after just 2 applications! I'm hoping the healing will continue. By the way, I've no connection with any of these products I've mentioned, I'm just a fellow sufferer wanting to find something that actually works for this very painful condition.
I bought this Hemosan cream on the strength of all the good reviews, but can only imagine that those people had very different symptoms to me to be remedied. For me, this was a complete waste of money and will be going in the bin.
