Saturated with natural witch hazel (commonly associated with the Dickinson name) and aloe vera the product does cool and soothe inflamed tissues while forming a temporary protective coating to reduce dryness and itching. We like ‘soothing’ and ‘cooling’ but what does Dickinson’s do to specifically target the pain and discomfort hemorrhoids are known to cause for an extended period of time?

Conclusion – T.N. Dickinson’s Hemorrhoid Pads Review
Most, if not all, hemorrhoid sufferers want fast and long term relief. Dickinson’s pads will not deliver on that hope. If your ‘affliction’ is merely mild, you might incur some, small benefit from usage. If you are like most sufferers, you will not have the time, patience or tolerance for a product that doesn’t help you–and fast.
