I use A&D ointment (the white zinc oxide kind) for baby diaper rash. Oh yeah...and a big old panti liner because it's really messy. But it does the trick usually.

I get a little over zealous at times when I'm wiping (especially when in flare). I also use baby wipes at times.

Ya, I never thought I'd be an "expert" when it came to butt-cracks and butt-holes, not exactly something to brag about that's for sure LOL!

The EVOO is sooo soothing *I find it to be anyways* and it's great for healing the area quickly!!!

Good luck :)
My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

EVOO that's the first I've heard that one. . .nice tip I'll try that next time. I always raid my baby's stash of diaper creams and powder when I get sore, always worked for me so I never tried anything else.

What about one of those cysts you can get on your tail bone. I forget what they are called but I know a few people that have had them. They are usually right around where your butt crack starts.
26 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

My mother use to get those she told me. She started having them after she fell off a horse and landed on her bum. She hasn't had them in over 15 years. She never found out what they were.

So funny, I can't stop laughing....my kids are wondering what I'm laughing at...they won't get it!! Needed that laugh, thanks!!!

Mine is pretty much hea;ed up.. the EVOO worked.. I think. I only used a little and only applied it the once. Like I said before, it usually heals up on its own after a few days anyway. Good luck Sara14 :)

When I was little (long ago) my older siblings (sisters) all used to tease me and say my butt was broken because it had a big crack down the middle of it....that's where that came from, little did any of us know that by the time I'd hit my early 20's those words would hold true thanks to crohn's disease.

Ya that EVOO does wonders, it's why I use it as a full body moisturizer every single day, I bruise easily and since using the EVOO, my bruises are much better and go away before they get a chance to get real ugly...I use it to soothe my perianal crohn's skin tags, it's doesn't make them better but they feel better even though they are still flaring.
