In my Maternal and Newborn Care class, we learned about using potatoes to help postpartum and pregnant mothers who suffer from hemorrhoids However, this potato poultice can be used by anyone with hemorrhoids. Here's how it works:
Step Two: place the potato shreds onto the base of a pair of tight fitting underwear or onto a menstrual pad (ideal method for women). Note: wear old underwear because the potato may stain.
Step Three: go to sleep with potato in your pants.
