Sitz Bath

A Sitz Bath is a small bath one sits in. It is often used for anal or genital cleansing, to relieve Anal / Rectal Itching or Burning, Abscess, Anal Fissure, for Hemorrhoids, or following childbirth.

Sometimes additives are put in the water such as Salts or Herbs.

Sitz Baths can be stand alone products or can be placed in the toilet bowl (like a toilet seat with a pan).
