Charmin makes a disposable soft wipe. Or even flushable baby wipes might work well.

Cottonelle makes a nice wipe as well. I get a big box at costco that comes with travel sized wipes i keep in my purse at all times! The travel sized are also at target with the travel toiletries. And yes. they are flushable. Now my husband even uses them. He loves them!

WE keep them near by the toilet - I use them too. As long as it says flushable and maybe has some soothing aloe in them I'm not too fussy about the brand. I always pick up the travel ones too especially for my large travel purse or if we are going to be out for a full day somewhere.

I just found in the travel section the other day - Charmin to go....a small roll about the diameter of a quarter or half dollar. Better than keeping a few napkins on hand if you get somewhere and they're out of toilet paper. (Don't ya just hate when that happens???)

I swear by the extra long panty liners - we both use them - keeps everything fresh - washing of underwear alot easier now too.

I buy the baby wipes Kirkland brand from Costco. There are not chemicals and it flushes down with no problem. Also when my behind is really sore from wiping, I put A and D ointment on it at night and by the morning, I am better.

Porclein-pancolotis 1/05 currently on pred. 20 mg, 250 imuran.

Wet wipes are a must for anyone who has more than one BM a day. I think that's everyone here! In my experience it doesn't matter who makes them. Scott, Charmin, Cottonelle, they're all good.

Dear Katie,
 
If you have a sore behind you can use witch Hazel ointment.  I live in Australia and you can buy this from a health food store.  The brand I use is called Sunspirit.  It is really good and I can guarantee you sore behind will feel better as soon as use it and will be almost completely healed in 24 hours.  Do a goole search for it.  I'm sure you would be able to find similar all over the world.

I use the wipes like the white corncob after the toilet paper (two red corncobs).  It's an old farmer joke for those of you old enough to remember an outhouse.

The colorectal surgeon at Mayo spent a few minutes stressing warm baths, pat dry the area. After BMs definitely use a moist flushable wipe (baby wipes etc.) and pat dry the area. Avoid toilet paper when possible. Hubby has a stubborn hemmohroid (in and out) That was his advice.
