Folks I know I had a fissure and it stopped bleeding, but my bum is still burning. Would you guess it's acid or from the fissure still. I haven't eaten anything spicy either. It's right on the inside of the butt, not on the outside, just right as you enter the butt entrance.
any suggestions to help with the burning where you can put medicine or onitment on the inside?
Thank you

The burning and itching is simply the flare of inflammation inside the rectum, I would ask your Doctor about Canansa at bedtime, it will help to control what your pains & as my dr and many others on this board say with IBD its better to treat both ends.

yeah, a total PITA!!

Bad combo with flare plus fissure.

Do ask the doc for proctocedyl....or use zinc oxide or hydrocortisone cream or even Canesten cream if it's possibly a bit of a yeast infection as well.

Doing a sitz bath can soothe both the sphincter and ease some of the inflammation. Sometimes stool gets into the cut/fissure and causes some inflammation. Witchhazel wipes can help during the day as well.

The Canasa will help, but if you're sensitive to its ingredients (which seems to be your issue)..it can exacerbate symptoms.

*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
