I'm getting a bit better at dealing with the sore bum problem, although I wouldn't say I've 'cracked' it. The rinse bottle idea has worked the best so far - haven't found a cream that's done a lot so far, but I'm gonna try others. In the meantime, I find it better to sit on the toilet for 10-15 minutes, rinse and repeat as often as necessary, and only dab dry when I feel like my colon is done for the time-being. The worst thing by far is passing tiny bits of stool several times an hour: it soon starts to feel like your arse is the outlet pipe of a chemical burns factory.
