Does anyone know of a cream or something that would numb your bottom?? I'm serious now... I figure they've got stuff to numb your mouth, how bout your butt?? I've just had it with the sensation in my rear end. I just feel it right along the right outside of my rectum and it's NOT a hemmeroid!!! (despite what my GI keeps telling me) there isn't a bump or fissure or anything in that spot.

Sorry... just thought someone might know.

JillAnn,
I am only guessing on this, but what about Ambusol. I think that's stuff you rub on gums for a toothache. If it's ok in your mouth on
that kind of tissue, I would think it would be ok in the area you are referring to. Just read the label and all info to be sure. I hope this will help. That can drive you nuts.

JillAnn - I'm not sure I would rub something on my nether regions that's not specifically made for it without consulting my pharmacist (I personally couldn't live without mine! - I mean without my pharmacist not my nether regions - well you know what I mean). I use Tucks often and they are a godsend, for sure (actually I use the cheap WalMart brand - just as good and half the price). Call your pharmacist for a recommendation. Good luck.

JillAnn, I have an internal hemmorroid and an anal fissure, and during their flare-ups I have used an over-the-counter product sold in a small tube called "Tronolane". It's a topical anesthetic used exactly for your problem.

Good luck!

I have painful hemmrhoids at times and have a prescription for Analpram. It WORKS!

I dont remember the name of it but there was a spray I was given for a very sore episiotomy. If it is safe there it must be safe a couple inches away. Good luck!
