Tsora, I have the same problem with burning -- it's awful. I have Anamantle cream from the GI, but what also helps is gentle rinsing without wiping. Use a little squeeze bottle from the drugstore, fill with warm water, then pat dry (don't rub). Powder doesn't work for me, but A&D ointment can help in between the prescription creme doses.
