Sometimes when I have too much diarrhea, my butt area is often swollen, somethimes the burning is unbearable.  Is it better to use an antibiotic ointment or something like a zincofax.   I have used Preparation H but this time it doesn't seem to be helping.

i use Calmoseptine. it works wonders. you can get it at any pharmacy, but most dont keep it in stock, so you have to ask them to order it. no prescription needed.

I currently use an ointment that has zinc in it and it is very soothing. Hope you find relief soon. Jo

My vote is for the calmoseptine, too. Also, soaking in a bath helps--although I know it's hard to find time to do that!

you can get proctocream (or something like it), a hydrocortisone cream via prescription. i am pretty sure you can get calmoseptine via the internet. that stuff is good. sitz baths/spa is great too. these are the things i do. if it is really bad, vicodin with a shot of jeager does the trick.

I vote for Calmoseptine as well! It works WONDERS! If you are REALLY raw, it might feel kind of tingly/burning at first, but I received the MOST relief from it.

It's OTC and your pharmacy can order it for you. I usually go to CVS, and just have the pharamacist take the name and order it. My CVS now stocks it for me. It's around $7 a tube and they can get it the next day.
