My mom has had hemorrhoids for 20 years (my fault, seeing how I was the only child of hers born vaginally!), and lately they have been getting worse. She does sitz baths for them fairly regularly. I see on amazon that people sell small bucket-type things specifically for sitz baths. Has anyone tried these? Is it any better than sitting in a bath tub only a bit filled? Our shower/tub gets pretty grimy and gross sometimes, and I thought this would be cleaner. Also, for anyone who does these for hemorrhoids, have you found that salts or any oils added to the water help? Thanks, and sorry that this isn't really vagina-related!
