Our Conclusive Review About Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream
We like that this product incorporates active ingredients that offer relief on multiple levels. We also like that this product can be applied externally and internally thereby making sure that all areas are covered. However, we feel that this product does not offer long-term solutions to a very irritating problem. After reading some of the negative reviews, we also do not feel very confident that this product can deliver on its promises. Although this product does make its active ingredients known, we still do not know what the rest of the ingredients are. This can be problematic when it comes to sensitive consumers who might be allergic to some of the unknown ingredients.
