I havent been eating much because it has been hurting so bad to go to the bathroom. (refer to last post)
--Has anyone ever had anal fissures and possibly had Crohns in the rectum or internal hemmies. Either way whatever it is, going to the bathroom is painful. It seems like when I eat solid foods it is less painful to go.....?
 
Idk, anyone know what would be easy on my bum??lol

Hi Beca the pred. should make your stools solid which might be better on your fissures then burning D that we can get at times. Maybe just go low roughage for now .Need any help with what foods to help on low roughage let me know. lol gail

someone on this board rec'd aquaphor ointment which has helped my fissures so much. I found it in Walmart. I have a little on constantly. Someone else rec'd calmoseptine but I haven't been able to get it in my pharmacy or dept stores.

you can get a prescription for a hydrocortisone cream. that helps. calmoseptine is good, but i believe you can only get it off the internet. google it.

as for what to eat, i find when i'm in a bad flare fasting helps a lot. other than that look into either the maker's diet or scd. those seem to help a lot of people. if they seem too intimidating, try to at least go gluten free and eliminate dairy and processed foods and refined sugars.

a script for cortisone suppositories saved my life. anything coming out is gonna hurt, so you need something to heal and soothe. take care, yp

An over the counter cortisone cream is CORTATE. Get the cream NOT the ointment.

Also, cut out all sugar, it helps tremendously with that burning, bits of glass cutting feeling in your anus. Use unpasturized honey instead. You can also try sit baths with natural bath salts and baby oil.

Best wishes.
