have the enemas helped with lowering the frequency?
Is the burning at the anus? Have you taken a look-see?
It could be a fissure, an external hemmie or maybe a mild yeast infection.
You could consider something external like an ointment.
I like proctocedyl ointment, zinc oxide or hydrocortisone cream. On occasion I use Canasa yeast cream on my butt if it's a certain redness and not helped from the above creams. Works quickly.
