Ouch, ouch, ouch! TMI, bowel prep related

This is sooooo embarrassing but I have to ask. What can I do to relieve my sore bottom? I am doing two days of clear liquids w/ magnesium citrate at noon today and again at noon tomorrow. Since everything is just running out of me, I'm so sore! I've even noticed blood when I wipe (I'm using my kid's flushable wet wipes and just patting gently.) What can I do tp alleviate some of this pain?

I have a new respect for babies who get diarrhea and cry because it hurts to go.

This possibility didn't even enter my mind. Any advice from you BTDT princesses?

You could try some A&D ointment, going commando, sitting on a cool damp towel, and using a spray bottle filled with cool water instead of using wipes.

This is about all I can think of at the moment. Hopefully someone else will come by and share what has worked for them.

take care

I have A&D, I think I"ll try it.

I actually think I'm going to sleep with one of DS's diapers in my underwear tonight. I'm so afraid of not making it to the toilet in the middle of the night. Kinda makes me wish for some Depends. Aren't I going to be cute????

Zinc ointment and/or ice packs should soothe things for you. Have you tried sitz baths??

Try putting some A&D around the external tissue and just inside AFTER you finish each time. That should protect the tissue from further damage. Poor thing....I feel so bad for you. As if we don't already have enough to deal with. 48 hours from now we'll be done......72 and we should be home and done with it.

Does anyone know if Desitin is ok? I read where another princess had used it to coat the area in between potty times.

I found a sample of Butt Paste in DS's drawer. AAAAHHHH, sweet relief! One application and it is amazing how good that stuff works!

I slept from 9:30-3, then the bowels kicked in again. I was up every hour after that.

I just dread drinking that bottle of magnesium citrate again today. It took me 25 minutes to get it down yesterday. Oh, gross!

Just wait till I see the dr. tomorrow. I'm going to give that man an earful. If that man ever decides on a career change, he would make a great midevil dungeon master!

Vaseline works for me!!! It gives a lot of relief and stays on. Just apply a lot with a kleenex evrytime you go. Goo Luck!

I used witch hazel on a cotten square. It is very soothing.

Good luck.
