Fast Food Heat Lamps Can Cure Hemorrhoids

Heat Lamps Can Cure Hemorrhoids
Who needs Preparation H when you've got food-warming lights? Apparently those big infrared radiating bulbs are the secret to hemorrhoid relief. Hemorrhoids form when veins where the sun don't shine become inflamed. It turns out that when a concentrated form of the same infrared light used to keep Big Macs warm is shined on the affected area, for less than a second, it helps shrink the inflamed area.

Doctors say the blast of heat is relatively painless, but then again, they always say that. Recovery takes about a day, then you can get back to your pre-inflamed derrière routine.
