I have developed no shame in my approach these days, lol. Some of the tips are horrid no matter what... I have tried vasoline, vitamin E oil, lube stuff, A & D stuff for babies seems to be best so far. I've heard the burt's bees diaper rash stuff was great, so I'll give that a go next.
I remember using the mesalamine before, it was definately worse than these, but the tips on those where much better made. Anyone thoughts on cortifoam or the suppositories? I don't really know of any other prescription type meds for that area. Hydrocort/Mesalamine/Cortifoam.
I have yet to stand on my head, lol. Nothing worse than the cats wondering in when I am attempting to get things in. I have been lying on my left side, which typically works, but like you said when you are really flared nothing wants to stay in. I think one of those tips gave me a nice scratch which made things worse this weekend.
On a good note, this is the first flare I have had in 17 months.
