My son has recently had a total colectomy and therefore is going to the loo a lot. He has been using baby wipes and Sudocream and recently started using a hemmaroid cream but he has still got a really sore and painful bottom.

Can anyone make any suggestions to help - maybe certain foods would be aggravating the situation? Maybe someone knows of a better barrier cream?

I have a temp loop ileostomy and waiting for my second surgery to rid me of the bag. I've been told that I will experience the problems that your son is having, and that cream and wet wipes should be used after each toilet trip. They did say that the GP can prescribe barrier creams for this problem so maybe its worth a trip to the GP. Although my back passage is not currently 'in use' I still have alot of discharge and it makes my bottom sooo painful unless I, like your son, use baby wipes and sudocrem. It sounds like you need something a lot stronger so maybe see your GP :)

I'm relatively new to all this so not of much use, but there are alot of experienced people on here who I'm sure can offer something advice. :-)

Calmoseptine Lotion is great for everything smilewinkgrin I use it for more than butt burn.

In the states we can get it in a pharmacy without a prescription.
