Sorry you are having so much trouble starting the remi. I don't know anything about
it . . . but you might try adding some fiber to your diet. Fiber helps C and D and will absorb the liquid in your gut to help control the D. Start slow so your body can get used to it. Some here take fiber supplements in many forms.
Also . . . wet wipes are very soothing in the bathroom. Use after every bm and make sure you don't flush them unless they the flushable type. But this helps the soreness a lot. Then apply the cream.
I hope this helps.
