Barrier Cream

Postby sam1989 » 15 Dec 2021, 19:48

Hello All. Was wondering if any of you have some advice on a good barrier cream? I have used Vaseline in the past but it seems to cause a lot of friction. I have an anal fissure on the top of my rectum. It’s in a weird spot near an old skin tag from a previous/old hemorrhoid. Any advice would be much appreciated. It’s so painful…..

I use Vmagic (men can use it too), and found it very helpful. It's not as persistent of a barrier as Vaseline so you'll have to reapply as needed. Another option is coconut oil. Take care, and please seek medical attention before trying home remedies for it.
8/16-12/16: Fissure due to antibiotics
5/17: Botox to sphincter, fissure healed
9/19: Trigger point injections and pudendal nerve block
11/19: Botox to pelvic floor
8/20: Botox to pelvic floor in new location.
Currently in pelvic physical therapy

My pelvic pain therapist recommended a lubricant called pur you can use internally if needed. I find it helps and doesn’t cause any side effects. You can get it on Amazon.
