I bought a tube of calmoseptine. Ask the pharmacist, it is OTC but you have to ask at some pharmacies. It seems to help me quite a bit. Of course, bad itch seems to be almost incurable and always returns. I think it means your ass is either too moist or too dry. Mine bounces between the 2 situations.
Diagnosed with mild proctitis in March 2007: Treated with Canasa (as needed)
December 08: Began treating with Asacol 400mg (9/day) + Canasa 2x/day - Anemic
May 09: Off Canasa, taking Asacol (9/day)
Back on Canasa every other night + Asacol (9/day) + Probiotics + Iron
Reducing to 6 Asacol/day + Canasa + Probiotics + Iron - So far so good!!! -SPOKE TOO SOON! Back to 9/day...
