I was wondering if anyone gets superficial anal or vaginal fissures. I had a bleeding one on my anus last night that I used my Beta-Val cream on and it hasnt vbled since. Today I now have one vaginally. I remember getting vaginal ones frequently as a kid and was passed off as being related to possible soap allergy. For the past 7 years I have stick to the same soaps, (laundry and bathsoap) and I still get them. I do tend to get more towards the end of my period, I think it may be due to the fact that I only use pads but I change them often enough even if they dont look like they need to be.
I just placed some beta val on the vaginal one and hope it gets better overnight like my anal one did.
I started my new job today and informed my boss (also an RN) about my CD and my Dr appts. The days where I have appts at 4:30 I will be able to work the early shift and get off at 4....from my building I have to go to another then catch a shuttle to the employee lot...sometimes you have to wait til the shuttle fills before it heads to the parking area. I got out at 4:10 today and got to my car by about 4:20
The first question I asked when I arrived at my work area was where are the bathrooms. There is one right outside the reception area and is for patients but I figure if I got to go and fast and its empty I'm going....they can blame a patient for my stink that way lol. I had the luxury of not needing to have a BM at work today, had 1 in the am 1 when I got home and 1 after dinner. I think it was since I barely ate breakfast just a tiny danish at the continental breakfast....drank lots tho coffee, tea and OJ as well as water. Hopefully I will be able to avoid frequent trips to the RR but at least the boss knows why I may be in there often
