This is an embarrassing story to tell, so I’m signing my first name only. My wife encouraged me to pass it on, though, in the hope that it might help others.
For years I’ve been plagued by occasional anal/rectal burning sensations when I’ve eaten spicy foods. I know that “if you won’t put it in your eyes, don’t put it in your mouth”, but that’s a hard slogan to follow 100%.
Recently I pigged out on far too many raw onions, and suffered mightily the next day. My pain when defecating was so severe that I thought I might faint.
I’ve read that anal/rectal cleanliness can minimize prostate and hemorrhoid problems, so I decided to give coconut oil a go there. Coconut oil’s antibacterial and antiviral qualities seemed appropriate as well, and, at that point, the region desperately needed soothing.
It certainly helped! I’ve since begun to manually apply coconut oil (from a jar separate from our cooking oil, of course) to the anus after every bowel movement. And I’ve finally given up onions. Like so many people, I’ve acquired some wisdom — the hard way.
