Can anyone recommend any over the counter meds for my "exit" area? All of the going to the bathroom and flaring has caused considerable irritation. My doc used to give me a prescription but I thought I could try something over the counter first? I might be getting some hemis back there again.
Last time I was on Prednisone I remember having more energy. I just can't deal with this fatigue!!!! My disease is currently limited to the last foot or so of my colon but you'd think I am ulcerated to my neck b/c I am soooo tired.
I'm done complaining. Thanks for listening. :-)

A & D ointment is nice for external use. I'd also do a little vitamin E enema down there, and you can use that on the outside too. Use the good E. It's very soothing.

I also like A&D ointment. Aquaphor (in the lotion isle) is good too. Desitin or the like works as well.
