Having trouble with burning and pain in rectum and around

Customer Question

Having trouble with burning and pain in rectum and around anus
that will not stop.
Raw and painful between the cheeks.
Have been to the family doctor several times. He has recommended
several things along with prescribing Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories.
Preparation H ointment, cream, wipes
Vasaline, baby powder, corn starch, non medicated wipes, baby wipes and
tissue paper inserted between the cheeks.
None of this works - in fact the burning and pain is worse.
The family doctor has set up an appointment with a rectal specialist but the
appointment is 2 months away and we cannot get a sooner appointment.
Any suggestions as to what can be done to lower the pain until we can
get in to see the specialist.
We have tried everything that has been suggested to us
and the family doctor has no more options to give.
