The doctor told me to lay off nifedipine because she suspected it was causing hypersensitivity. If I do have days when I need to use it then I only apply it externally.

If you're having watery BMs I suggest using a barrier cream beforehand like zinc oxide or vasline until you can get them to be firmer again. A soluble fiber like benefiber is also helpful for firming. Try a low dose at first like one teaspoon with breakfast.

I do use the barrier creams when BM's get too frequent or watery. Barrier creams do seem to protect the area somewhat better. I do also use coconut oil when I can and it also seems to sooth the area somewhat. I make my own coconut suppositories by using a coffee bean silicon mould tray in which I fill with coconut oil and freeze. Just pop one out when I need to apply it and it is quite soothing.

I was taking Fiber every day but always felt like it was making the stools too large. I switched to Miralax and it caused me less bloating. You just have to be careful and get the correct dosage for you or risk runny stools which is not good. I will try to eventually switch over to Magnesium as I did before. I think it will be just as effective once the correct dose is accheived as well as being better for you overall.
