While you wait for some answers, I suggest you keep a barrier cream (like zinc oxide) applied at all times to prevent further irritation.
What was the treatment for inflammation? Are you allowing yourself to fart off the toilet? Many of us find that we can’t safely fart off the toilet - every fart is a shart.
Thanks for the reply, Scott. I’m using lots of barrier creams. I started using them as soon as I had my first bowel movement in the hospital after takedown. Just can’t seem to get ahead of the irritation. I was given Amoxicillin for the inflammation (allergic to cipro and Flagyl makes me very ill) but had to stop it after 8 days as I developed an allergic reaction. And yes, I am able to fart off the toilet sometimes. Usually if I am laying in bed. I don’t trust it too much yet.
