Tho it gets mentioned every so often, with the recent spate of butt problems, suggest making use of a sitz bath, which provided me some relief when I still had my tumor while undergoing preop chemo and rad and my *** was killing me......Costs around ten bucks in a drugstore, its a basin you fill with warm/hot water thats placed over your toilet and you sit on it for awhile, (after your docs say its ok to use) and it may soothe what ails you for a spell.....For pain between the cheeks,I was given prescription for silver sulfadiazine.....Also, tried to clean self with water spray bottle and dried with fan breeze (that was in summer time).....

For my anal fissure, I'd sit in the tub in 2 inches of warm water several times a day for relief. Works too.

i used a tub,but vasoline saved me and my existing hemmoroids from having to have another surgery to remove them. I had diaherra (spell)from diagnosis 12/08 for about a year. Lomotil would help slow it down, but I kept vasoline on all the time and a hot sitz bath to clean area and showers to clean me. I carried a small jar with me at all times and I believed it was my one life saver. I saw someone recommend A&D which I never tried, but probably would have been good. It just seemed to be the most natural product and it worked. Good luck to everyone with a sore butt.....it is a real pain to deal with. Pat
