Brief Answer:
You can use coconut oil or glycerin trinitrate.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

First of all, you should stop diarrhea from happening. You may use loperamide and also use probiotics such as Enterogermina to reestablish the intestinal flora.

You can wash the area with water with gentle soap. Dry it well. You can use coconut oil or glycerine trinitrate to help to heal.

You can use Lidocaine ointment locally to help with pain.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
