In brief: 1/4 cup
Put warm water into your sitz bath until it's about 1/3 of the way full.
Add 1/4 cup of epsom salt. Then add yourself. Hope it helps!

In brief: No salt
When i recommend sitz bath for my patients (eg after anal fistula surgery) i ask them not to add anything to the water. This is just based on my experience and other surgeons may disagree with this and may have different opinions.
