Brief Answer: Antiseptic lotions help Detailed Answer: Hi, I presume that you have perianal abscess and you are prescribed Sitz baths (not Hip bath). Kamillosan has lanolin and chamomile extracts which are moisturirzer and antiseptic properties. I suggest you can go to any pharmacy / store and ask the pharmacist to help find a solution which has Lanolin plus Chamomile. It would be difficult to suggest a brand name in Australia. By the way we suggest any antiseptic lotion to be put in the sitz bath tray like DETTOL. Hope this helps.
