For that tender/burning/pain from too much diarrhea

When you get tender, painful and/or burning on your rear end from too much diarrhea or leaking, try putting a few dabs of food grade corn starch on your rear. That's corn starch, not laundry starch or anything else from the kitchen.

I've known about this all my life and just realized that others may not know of this miraculous treatment. It will provide a lot of relief almost instantly and relieve all of the discomfort in just a few minutes. Any discomfort left after 10 minutes is caused by something else. It's that effective.

In America the most common brand is probably Arm and Hammer. If you know of a major brand of food grade corn starch in another country, please post it so others will know what I'm talking about.

I apologize to everyone for not posting this earlier, it just didn't occur to me until now that not everyone knows this.
