Out of the 5 top products, Recticare had the most unique formula. It was ambitious and combines two different schools of thought on how to create a faster treatment. The problem is, this formula has not been fully tested or proven to work in clinics.

So it can either work better than any other hemorrhoid product, or not at all. As you can see from the next section, it’s closer to the latter.

Customer Rating

Though 88% approval isn’t something to balk at, it is the lowest of all our products and we do believe it’s because of it’s unconventional formula. The ingredients don’t seem to be sub-par in quality, but the formula definitely seems to be holding this treatment back.


Along with the customer rating, the value of Recticare suffers as well. Due to high marketing costs and a focus on image over substance, you’ll see this product listed well over $45, when we would expect something like this to cost $25 or less.


Recticare Rectal Cream is a great product, and we give them credit for using an ambitious formula to tackle a common problem. The problem is, there were about 20 other products just slightly below this cream in our ratings, which means it’s basically a very average product. We would recommend looking elsewhere on this list.
