The best ointment out there for this type of problem is Ilex. Be sure to apply a thin film and then cover it with vaseline. I have never tried it but I know of people who swear by it. Things should settle down in time where it won't be needed as much. You can hop on over to www.j-pouch.org for more recommendations.
