I had a pouchoscopy this week, during which my hypertrophied anal papilla was finally removed (some of you might remember I posted about this a few months ago on another thread. Damn thing was a real pain in the you know what and I'm happy to be rid of it. )
After the scope, it was mentioned to me that the skin around my anus was very excoriated. I suspect a lot of this has been due to the papilla, which had become so large it was protruding, but otherwise I do use a barrier cream after each BM. I rotate Calmoseptine, Sudocreme, and plain old Vaseline. I also pat dry and avoid rubbing. Any suggestions on what else I can be using to heal the skin and prevent further breakdown? I'm considering a bidet attachment if one can be modified to fit my condo bathroom (it can't be electric as I have no socket nearby and running an extension cord is not feasible due to the small space) but in the meantime any other suggestions such as different products, tips, etc, would be welcome.
