Is the burning right on your anus? If so this is likely due to fissures, epsom salt baths will help heal the area along with gently rubbing some extra virgine olive oil on it after each sitz bath.

The only thing that works for me is Lidocaine Viscous 2% syrup.  All the prep H, anamantle things seem to irritate it more.  Calmoseptine is menthol cream over the counter at Walgreens, it burns some but does provide some relief if you can't get the script fot the Lidocaine.   Trust me, I am the QUEEN of burning butt.  Or would I be the princess? LOL.

I have a hemi and have been using the suppositories, cream and wipes and also the baths. It's taken about a week and a half but I am much better (though still not completely gone). It felt like I was pooping razor blades and I was white knuckling it holding onto the sink. The cream stings a bit when I put it on but I think it helped me more than anything else.

Ahhhh, BBS....a torment to be sure!!

Hi uctony...are you flaring at the moment as well?

Have you taken a look-see if there's anything visually (yeah, the only way is to squat over a mirror). Best you see to know what you're dealing with than guessing.

Sometimes one can have a bit of yeast inflammation .... an over-the-counter med for women...canesten external cream will work for that. Otherwise, one that has a combo with antifungal in it will be good...

hope you find relief.

I was also wondering what to do about that...Not every BM, but probably 90% of them seems like I've eaten nothing but hot peppers...My butt seriously burns...I know it's not a fissure or anthing like that, I just figured it was just some irritation or maybe a small amount of inflamation...

Maybe you have a hemheroid (possibly internal) if you're sure it's not a fissure.

Calmoseptine ointment works well for this. You can only find it at drug stores that sell ostomy supplies or you can order it online at www.calmoseptineointment.com

do you keep a food journal? you should really try it if not.
i recently discovered that cooked tomato comes out flaming for me. i wouldn't have figured this out without the journal since i can never quite remember everything i ate.

it's great if you can find a cream or something that helps but it is always better if the burning doesn't happen in the first place.

anyway, maybe something that will help.
hope you find relief soon!

Sometimes I get that if I'm going to much or having too much diahrea. the best cure I've found, assuming the aforementioned cause, is to use A&D Ointment, A.K.A. Diaper Cream.
Works like a charm!
Basically it creates a safety barrier between the tender tissue of your anus and the horrors coming out of your butt!

I get this, too. I think it's because I still have some inflammation in the rectum. Before I got UC, it would feel like that if I ate spicy food the day or two before...now it feels like that at least 2/3 of the time.

I have tried many, many things for the BB - the razor blade analogy was so true - I thought I had a fissure, but if I did, my last colonoscopy didn't confirm.  Doc said it is my internal hemis.  I have had good luck with Prep H "Cooling Gel with Pain Relief", fish oil supplements and one stool softener every night.  I've been in remission for about 1 1/2 yrs. and this is the best I've felt since my diagnosis.  I did switch to low acid orange juice, reduced my consumption of tomato products and gave up hot wings (I can have the mild).  I eat as much fiber rich foods as I can tolerate without causing pain and drink lots of fluids.  The over the counter products work much better for me than the prescription stuff the doc gave me.  A food diary may help you- it helped me eliminate the culprits.
 
Good luck!

Old Hat, sorry I didn't respond to your questionabout Bag Balm. My computer has been acting up and I've had difficulty getting on the net.

Anyway, yes Bag Balm is for cows utters. Because it is not intended for human use, but Walgreens and other places sell it in the beauty supply section, it has some pain relieving ingredient and really soothes the raw butt!

I swear by it. My granddaughter has refused to use it when she was excoriated so it may not feel the same to everyone.

Hi Tony,

You are most likely eating something that does not agree with you. I too once had the same problem until I worked out what I was eating. It turned out that I was unable to tolerate the natural sorbitol in fruites i.e Apricots, peaches, nectarine, cherries, plums, apples and pears. I use witchazel ointment by Sunspirit when I have an irritation you know where.

Please read the thread called FODMAPS. Finally help achieved with diet.

I do not usually post to other threads so see my posts in the link provided.

Jjay :)

Fruit Sugars is Fructose not sorbitol, sorbitol is a sugar alcohol which is man-made...all people with IBD and IBS should avoid sugar alcohols because just a small amount can cause D, bloating and gas, other sugar alcohols are xylitol, mannitol. maltitol and lactitol...sugar alcohols are regular (processed sugar) manufactured with hydrogen molecules.

Dear :)
 
I know you are only trying to help, but there are fruits that contain sorbitol.  I had this confirmed by a dietitian and am following a diet that she has recommended.  Please take a look a this link http://ibdcrohns.about.com/cs/otherdiseases/a/dbgas.htm
At Box Hill Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, there has been research into a low FODMAP Diet- Fructose, fructans, sorbitol and raffinose.  I have been avoiding the following foods for about 4 weeks and all of the constipation I had been experiencing for the past 13 years has now gone.  Also I have almost no bleeding.  Below are the foods that I am now avoiding.  What she has recommended is, that after eliminating these foods for 8 weeks, they are reintroduced and challenged one by one.  Please read my post entitled:-
FODMAPS. Finally achieved with diet
 
In the diet she has listed:-
 
Foods with SORBITOL-
  • Apricots
  • Peaches
  • Nectarines
  • Cherries
  • Plums
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Artificially sweetened gums, mints, lollies
  • artificial sweeteners:  Sorbitol, Mannitol, Xyulitol, Isomalt

Foods with excess FRUCTOSE-

  • Honey
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Mandarin
  • Peach
  • Mango
  • Watermelon
  • Honeydew melon
  • Lychee
  • Carambola, staf fruit
  • Nashi fruit
  • Coconut cream / coconut milk
  • Tinned fruit in natural juice (pear juice)
  • Fructose or corn syrup
  • Fruit juice (even need to limit safe fruits to 1/3 glass of juice)
  • Dried fruit (limit safe fruits to 1 tablespoon)

Foods with FRUCTANS

  • Wheat (in large amounts)
  • Rye (in large amounts)
  • Onion- brown, white, spring, spanish, shallots
  • Leeks
  • Artichokes
  • Zucchini
  • Chicory - Ecco, Caro drinks
  • Dandelion Tea
  • Inulin (artifical fibre added to products, e.. dairy foods)
  • Fructo-oligo saccharides (FOS) (artifical fibre added to some nutritional supplements)

Foods with RAFFINOSE

  • Cabbage
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Green beans
  • Asparagus
  • Legumes - chickpeas, lentils, red kidney beans, baked beans
I know that eliminating these foods has really helped with my condition.

LEDAEBEL-- sorry about your computer glitch; thanks for reply on Bag Balm. So Walgreen's stocks it in the beauty supply section? Heeheehee! The logic of that .... !!!!! I wonder if pb4 has read this because she has a great sense of humor & would surely make the connection. It is just so funny. / Old Hat
