Charlie, I'm a huge fan of bidet seats. My takedown was in mid-December and until I bought my seat I had to use creams all the time and I still had a couple of stubborn spots that still got irritated. Since I started using the bidet seat about
six weeks ago I have not had to use creams once. Don't know if you are familiar with them or not but the seat just sits on top of a regular toilet. Mine is heated and sprays warm water for up to a minute after you are done with a BM but they have all different models. I learned about
them on jpouch.org. I' had never heard of them but now I can't imagine my life without one. If that's not an option for you, using a simple squirt bottle filled with warm water afterwards would also help. Good luck.
