What do others do when their butt is on "fire" from so much diahrrea and the constant wiping?  Is there any cream or lotion that folks have found helpful?  I don't know if I have a fissure ... or my butt is just raw from wiping so often ... but I'd like to find something that soothes it a little.

My husband and I like Tucks medicated wipes. It really helps the burning feeling, and also, because it's wet, it helps keep down the number of times you have to wipe to get clean. I'm sure others will have more suggestions.

Although it burns like crazy for the first few seconds after you apply it, you may get some relief from Calmoseptine Ointment. It's nonprescription and helps coat and protect all the sore, chafed places. Good luck!

Also try to pat dry vs wiping all the time. That might help a little. I always use Desitin when my bottom gets too raw. Good luck!

I used vaseline the last time my bottom was sore. It worked pretty well.

Try to keep a coating of Vaseline on your exit door. lol If you keep it applied before you go it helps more.

I went to my Dr and told him that it feels like I am always eating highly spiced foods. My butt is always burning. After doing the finger exam for blood and finding none. "Whew"
He sugested lotion to ease the soreness. I use hydracordasone cream and baby lotion. Seems to work.
Had Crohns' since I was in my early twentys and now am 65 years old. On Mercaptopurine 50mg and Balsalazide 750 mg. I am lucky from what I have been reading. No bowel resection yet and it has been a while since a flare.

After the 3rd D I use vasoline for the rest of the day. If it gets worse or for overnight I use Anusol plus. It does burn for a bit, then your frozen but keep up the vasoline to prevent more damage. As for sleeping commando not a chance with my D. Those days are long gone.

I'm with everyone else here.  Tucks wipes help prevent it, Vasoline helps sooth it when you're walking around afterwards.  Though no one has mentioned my favourite thing to do when my butt burns - taking a hot bath.  It helps every time. :)  For me at least...

I think the pain when going to the toilet is one of the worst things about Crohn's disease. I often have to splash cold water on whilst going to toilet. Hope you feel better soon Kia

"Yellow Soft Paraffin which the pharmacy recommended really good as a barrier"

Am I mistaken to think that men would not want to do this?

I discovered the BEST solution to this problem a year ago!!  Go down your nearest baby aisle and buy a product called, Balmex.  Its similar to vaseline, but isn't as greasy.  Just make sure you don't get the cream kind, it doesn't work as well.  It has changed my life! :)

Wipe with a wet towel after each bowel movement.I found that would keep the burning away.

I use the unscented baby wipes with aloe. Made a huge difference. Sometimes if I need to, I will use vaseline or antibiotic cream with cortisone cream.
