If you are already suffering from butt burn you can start using some Zinc barrier Cream if you are not currently doing so. But just because you are suffering now doesn't imply you will later. As far as Barrier creams go you should always have a bottle on hand if you're getting a Jpouch in the future regardless it's easier to prevent butt burn than to try and heal it after. Not everyone may get butt burn, but if you do here are some tips from personal experience. This also works with hemorrhoids which when added to the mix is not a fun combo but common among problem poches from all the straining. Here are some personal things that kept me going on bad nights.
One, try Zinc Barrier Cream, keep trying different brands until you find one that you like best, you must apply this before you go or obviously it doesn't protect.
Two, get a bidet or at the very least a spray bottle filled with warm water before hand that you keep near the toilet and use it as a manual bidet.
Three, baby wipes over toilet paper.
Four, either shower right after or run a hot bath right before so you can jump right in after, possibly with epsom salts as you soak away.
Five, Avoid certain foods that increase butt burn, some possible culprits include tomato sauce, lemonade and chocolate. Not everyone has the same reaction you have to try the food and see, a lot of pouchers if they are going to try something new or eating food that may make their stool a bit more acidic or foods with spice they just prepare ahead of time with some barrier cream.
