Cecelia has given you some great recommendations for butt creams. Have you tried taking metamucil? Most people like the wafers; they're great for binding foods and eliminating the burn. The powder doesn't work as well but if you try that use half the amount of water recommended. What are you eating? Often in the early days of recovery some foods are troublesome. Until your system adjusts you might want to eliminate any thing with sugar in it (including fruit juice) and avoid tomato products. Are you taking imodium or lomotil to slow your transit time? Are you keeping a food diary to measure transit times and effect of foods on your system?
