Man, that Preparation H is a miracle. I feel like writing a letter to the company. Even though spouse brought home the ointment last year, I had avoided using it. The whole applicator business just really turned me off. Plus I'm of the tribe "that if you leave it alone, it'll go away on its own". Well, it (they?) didn't go away on its own, and the whole thing came to a climax when an irritated spouse in the middle of doing laundry came out to the living room to show me what I had done to a pair of underwear. I guess I'd been scratching that itch a bit much (and shut up, I wipe fine). So I told him I would use the ointment. I didn't use the applicator, I just washed my hands real well after. It was interesting to note that I got a new perception of the lay of the land there, seeing with my finger. Is this TMI? Probably. Anyway, I've used it only twice and, well, to quote someone I'm sure, "it shrunk that shit right up!" I can't believe I could have avoided a year of discomfort so easily. Doh!
Squeamish? Oh come off it, we're all turddroppers.
