Hubby is on xeloda and it is making his bum raw; he has tried desitin but wants me to ask you guys what worked for you. Any advice?
Literally, bummer. Try a sitz bath, the one in the toilet and add Phillips Magnesium to the water, for some reason it really helps, also the one thing that helped me most of all was Calmoseptine Ointment. It is over the counter but you have to ask for it. Get in the 4 oz tube instead of the 2 oz - much better price. Another thing is just to sit in the tub with epsoms salts. I'd cry every time I'd go to the bathroom because it hurt that bad and I'd bleed so bad that it would drip into the toilet. I'm so feeling for your husband and hope he feels better soon.
Thanks so much! He is in pain but still trying to march on, I hope one of these work.
GOD bless you!
Double post - sorry
Calmoseptine is he bomb! If your pharmacy does not have it ( it is over the counter) they will usually order it for you. You'll want he big tube!
Neosporin.. or Aquaphor..
Dennis has asked me to tell you all thank you so much! He took your advice and said it made him feel amazingly better over night. He even rode his horse most of the day with friends and I. He was singing, goofing off and making up crazy stories to make all the girls laugh. Big thanks from both of us!
