Diaper rash cream will help the external area from burning as much. I have "Butt Paste" but others have recommended A&D.

I love A&D ointment -easier than a lot of diaper creams, provides a barrier protection against further burning and irritation and promotes healing. Its also cheap -easily available and doesn't smell bad! Products with zinc oxide are hard to get on to irritated skin, messy and a bit more expensive. That's my vote!

Symptoms since Jan 2009, Dx UC vs crohns May 2010 but probably small bowel Crohn's dz, biopsies all "normal"

Meds: Celebrex, Omeprazole, Liadla, Entocort EC 9mg/day, Vit D, Mulitvit, Omega 3's, Ambian, Neurontin

A&D, or ask your doctor for a prescription of the cream that combines Lidocaine and Hydrocortisone. Comes with little individual applicators. It's a little messy, but absolutely works the best for me.

and make sure you are using a wipe instead of standard toilet paper...My husband has some in a baggie, cuz he even likes it better, and he doesn't have crohn's...there are many different types, but make sure they are septic/sewer safe...the regular baby wipes are not, but usually the toddler wipes are...I also use a Prep-H wipe...I get them at Costco...but you can get them anywhere from your local drugstore, to Target...good luck!
