I’m lucky to be a Mom Central blogger because they are great about hooking me up with some wonderful products for moms and families. When they asked me to write about Tucks brand medicated products, I didn’t hesitate to say yes, even though the subject of hemorrhoids makes me uncomfortable just thinking about it! But, let’s face it, if you’ve been pregnant, being sore “down there” is just what happens, whether it’s from the effects of pregnancy or vaginal birth.
I’ve given birth to four children, and let me tell you, I was so relieved to have Tucks after I had my kids! I had big babies (my firstborn weighed almost ten pounds, and my last two babies were full-term twins), so my body got a real workout. The only relief I found was through sitz baths and Tucks pads. They contain witch hazel, an astringent that helps relieve irritation and burning due to hemorrhoids.
If you suffer from hemorrhoids or soreness due to pregnancy or childbirth, visit www.tucksbrand.com to view the products they offer to make you more comfortable. They even have convenient Tucks Take Alongs, which are individually packed towelettes that you can slip in your diaper bag or purse without making a mess. And they’re hypo-allergenic, dye-free and pH balanced.
Of course, with any sort of vaginal or rectal discomfort or soreness, always check with your physician before using any sort of treatment. If you get the okay, pick up some Tucks brand medicated products right away. Your sore tushie will thank you!
You can also enter to win a box of Tucks Take Alongs, which contains 12 individually packed medicated towelettes, just by leaving a comment below.
