The HC supps are probably the best if it's due to inflammation/hemmies, those can reduce it and make you feel better. I have used lydocaine ointment for butt pain as well, but that just numbs, ultimately you want to heal it so you don't have the pain. They also sell these handheld bidets. They are basically a water bottle with a spout that you can use to spray water there instead of all the wiping, but keeping the area too wet can come with its own set of issues, like risk of yeast... it's a happy balance you need to achieve. If it gets really bad, where anusol, or prep h, or tucks, or lidocaine, or calmoseptine, aren't doing much, time to go to the doctor. It could be something like a fissure.
