Be advised, hemorrhoid cream not for the face
Drug maker issues warning against using ointment as a cosmetic

OSLO - German drugmaker Schering warned consumers on Thursday not to use hemorrhoid cream on their faces.

The warning came after a male stylist said on Norwegian television that many photo models used the cream in the morning to get rid of puffy eyes, which the drug company said seemed to have boosted demand for such products at pharmacies. Beauty magazines in the U.S. have been advising the same for years.

“This is a pharmaceutical and not a cosmetic,” the group’s Norwegian subsidiary Schering Norge AS said in a statement, warning especially to keep hemorrhoid cream out of the eyes.

It said the warning applied to its product, Scheringproct, which it said was “a pharmaceutical that is used on hemorrhoids and around the opening of the large intestine”.

Truth is, you can use it on the ass AND the face. Just not in that order.

Isn't it a known fact that Conan O'Brien uses Prep-H under his eyes?
Thought I remembered him riffing on that a time or two.

Oh well I use Oil of Olay on my butt but it's for the face!
Each cheek gets a daily facial.
