Hi, I'm a 42 YOA female. After a colonoscopy, I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis and gastritis, approximately 15 months ago.I was given a treatment plan that included probiotics, Metamucil and vitamins. I have not seen any improvement. I was also tested for celiac disease, and other gastrointestinal disorders. I have 2 children and were blessed with hemorrhoids after their births. For the last 3 weeks I have been experiencing the most extreme flare with the hemorrhoids! I'm also currently experiencing the diarrhea end of the forever oscillation between constipation and diarrhea. With this I have had the most EXTREME pain and itching. Also, I have some sort of "moisture" that occurs. To describe, it's almost like when you have an abrasion and there is a clear, serum-like discharge....that is what this resembles. I have tried EVERY OTC hemorrhoid cream, ointment, pad, wipe, suppository, powder, etc. I have tried meds for yeast infections. I have used prescription hydrocortisone cream. I am at my wits end with this! I am so uncomfortable! Any advice would be so very appreciated.
Sometimes coffee has to be eliminated, or at least try a low-acid one. The leaking does occur when hemorrhoids are acting up sometimes. Use a panty liner positioned farther back and also you can stuff a cotton ball in the crack to catch fluid. Remove them rather than flushing them. Neem soap may help the skin recover from this. Use antifungal cream if the skin gets thick and dark from staying moist, but apply it to freshly cleansed and dry skin. Pat to dry rather than rough wiping of the irritated skin. Try Sitz baths. Avoid sitting for long if possible.
