I have tried so many things, the only thing that kind of helps is Lidocane Viscous 2% but it is weird putting it on because it is syrup.  What else works?

try sitz baths (as hot as you can stand) with lots and lots of Epsom salts.

maybe even some cortifoam for a short course.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

So,  we talking the external rectal pain caused by irritation from the excessive diarrhea, and wiping?  or is it that internal rectal pain..the burning way up high?    for external,  yea the lidocaine would be good.  or have you tried any barrier methods such as what is used for diaper rashes,  like desitin?  or A&D ointment?  
for the internal rectal pain, the only thing that worked for me was good ol PERCOCET!
