Had surgery for fissures, taking sitz bath. Would sitz baths in betadine solution be okay during periods? - Online Doctor Chats
this is Dr XXXXXXX
how are you?
I am good-recently under went a surgery for fissures
and i have to take sitz baths everyday and getthe dressing
there is no reason why it wouldnt be
You'll have to be extra carful about hygeine
But thats it
but betadine solution- is it good if you are menstruating
Betadine is an antiseptic XXXXXX
and should i continue with the dressing
its kind of uncomfortable in this period
But the dressing needs to continue
You can try and make it less obstrusive
Basically the dressing is only for the wound as such
Also, you could consider using a tampon
That will be less uncomfortable
i am not comfortable in tampons
then even a normal sanitary napkin will also do
As I said
so i think i'll continue with sanitary napkins and the dressing as it is
The chances of this getting infected are greater now
so be meticulous about the hygeine
also, what are you using for the dressing?
Gauze or micropore or something else?
i wipe the area with betadine soln and put a gauze
Go the pharmacy today and ask for micropore
its water proof
so it'll be useful
wht is difference between cremafin and cremafin plus?
Cremaffin plus also contains sodium picosulphate
which is an additional laxative
what have you been prescribed for the constipation?
are you taking lots of water and plenty of fruits and vegetavles
thanks for your advice
is there anything else I can help you with?
thanks for consulting me
have a good day ahead
