    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    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.

    You can also buy an ointment that protects and soothes your skin- zinc oxide.
