Sitz Bath

Sitz Bath

Overview

Sitz bath is a warm therapeutic bath for delicate genitals. It cleanses the anal region and fastens the healing process by increasing the blood flow in the area.  A specific plastic container with warm water is kept on a toilet seat. Ensure that the temperature is warm enough to be soothing but not burning.

However, warm water alone can be enough for the healing, but additives like Epsom salt, potassium permanganate, or betadine can reduce itching and swelling. Once in place, check the temperature of the water and adjust it accordingly. Now settle down and relax; try to sit for around 15 to 20 mins. Clean with a soft cloth. 

If you are using any medicated ointment for the haemorrhoids or fissures, this is the best time to use it. Sitz bath is a very soothing and effective method to relieve the pain of fissures and Piles. If done correctly, it fastens the recovery from acute pain and in the post-surgical period.

Sitz bath should be done at least twice a day. One must use the anaesthetic ointment for piles or fissures, wait for 5 minutes, proceed to pass stool, clean with water and tissue, and then sit for a SITZ bath for 15 to 20 minutes re-apply the ointments prescribed.

If a particular plastic container is not available, one can use a regular tub, and the purpose is to “sit” in warm water for 15 min.
