Calmoseptine ointment you usually find sold behind the pharmacy counter is awesome for external discomfort like you're describing Jenn. Someone on these very forums suggested it months ago and I asked my pharmacist if he carried it, sure enough, it was in stock. It's very thick, more like a cream and has a scent to it but once you apply it, the discomfort goes away and healing begins.
*edit* didn't realize this was a 3 year old thread but I left my reply, in case it helps someone out there struggling.
