We have already reviewed the best sitz bath shower chairs selling on amazon. One of the major concerns we got from our readers was that there is that number that do not want to necessarily sit and so they want another solution. Say for example that you have just had a back surgery and so bending or even sitting on the toilet seat is a tall order. Can there be a way that you can still take a sitz bath. Well, yes. With a pair of sitz bath shorts, you will be able to do so.

A sitz bath is great when you have hemorrhoids, anal fissures, anal irritation or have just had an injury on your perineum and the doctor has advised that the warm water treatment for 10-15 minutes, 2 times a day would do you good.
