I've had a hemorrhoid pile the size of about half a grape bugging me and not going away for probably ehh about the past 7 years. I never thought that I'd be able to do anything about it. Well, after 3 days of applying castor oil topically to it, the pile is almost gone. I've had it for 7 years. ... and in a few days almost gone. That shocked me.
...I've ALSO had a little bump from an eye stye that I've had for over 20 years on my right eye lid. 2 days of applying castor oil on it with a q-tip and it's about 1/3rd of the size.
