Hey guys – in no way am I pimping out a product for any personal gain – but I’ve noticed a lot of people have problems using toilet paper (as do I). I now have a peri-anal abscess/fistula and fissure, and find these wipes called Rectogesic to be a god send. They are so much thicker, softer and gentler than baby wipes. I was using Huggies and the best baby wipes I could find until I found these rectogesic wipes. They really sooth and calm the area when you wipe. I looked online and they seem to have a powder and cream too. I noticed its an Australian site so I hope you can get it in the U.S too.


I only wish I’d known about them when I first was diagnosed so I didn’t use TP for years on end!


For those of you having problems with tears or a ‘sore butt’ you might want to give them a go! I’ve only tried the wipes, not sure about the powders and what they’d be used for – but honestly, it provides relief when relief is so desperately needed!


Has anyone else come across them or used them before?

I've heard of these wipes. Are you experiencing any of the usual Rectogesic side-effects when using the wipes?

I am currently trying the Rectogesic cream. Here is some background on what I have experienced so far:

I am in the USA. I obtained Rectogesic over the internet in 2% formulation at acost of $32 +$7.50 S&H for a 30gram tube. I am not covered by medical insurance and I have a very serious case of bleeding and painful multiple hemorrhoids. I have previously used commercial hemorrhoidal cream and a topical steroid cream in an attempt to reduce the discomfort of this problem.

I have done 3 applications of Rectogesic to-date over two days so far.

My anus has loosened up somewhat and pain is greatly reduced.

Side effects include pressure on left side of my head, dizziness/light-headedness and even a bit of nauseousness. The affects are strongly evident for about two hours after application, declining in degree over time. I am not liking these effects!

I have also noticed a progressive loosening of my stool. The last movement today was completely loose, like diarrhea. This is not good as diarrhea residue is difficult to clean. I have taken to the using my shower head as a sort of bidet device after a stool movement, but this wouldn't work if I were out of the house.

With these side-effects, I can't see the cream as a long-term solution for this problem for me.
