For sure...I tear the one little fissure I have
open every few days or so...excessive wiping is definitely why. I don't put on cortisone or zinc as often as I should because I feel NO discomfort from it except when the external hemmorhoid wants to join in on the fun.
Nichole.. Awesome you got in quickly with your doctor. I hope it's small and can be dealt with quickly.
Jjc....it sounds as though you had a fissure...if it does happen again, even slightly...you can purchase sitz bath "bowls" that can be put on the toilet. They do work I've heard, but I've not used them.
I guess the best cleaning for many of our butt woes would be a bidet....Wooee!!
