For years I've been cleaning my rectal cavity by wiping

For years I've been cleaning my rectal cavity by wiping with lotion or patrolium jelly.. Recently I've been having an unknown problem with what seems to be my prostate. Feeling this could be due to this practice.. I asked the treating urologist and he said to use KY jelly like they do in rectal exams. But they don't sell that at stores. Am I the only one in the world who cleans myself in this fashion? Dry toilet paper is so uncomfortable and doesn't do the job of cleaning the mess when your stool is always have solid, half mush and alot of it gets stuck up inside.

i never went to the dentist in over 21 years. I then decided to take better care of my teeth and went and had all teeth cleaned and checked for cavities. I had 1 cavity after 21 years. now i have been going to the dentist twice a year for cleaning and checkup. Last visit revealed 6 cavities. How do i go from 1 cavity in 21 years to 6 cavities in about 21/2 years ?

I have a large cavity on my face, was a zit but no it s just like a cavity. I have no insurance. I keep draining it using a sterilized needle. I always get very watery puss and blood out, and today a solid white puss shout out. Since then it has drained continuously the same yellowish watery puss. I have kept it clean with hydrogen peroxide and newsprint, but I am considering irrigating it with either alcohol, saline, or peroxide by injecting it into the cavity to wipe out any remaining infection. Is this safe? My mother is a trained lab tech, I will let her do the procedure.

what would cause a cluster of cavities in a month? I had my teeth cleaned a month ago and nothing was evident at all. Today I just got 8 fillings on my top teeth. I am a type 2 diabetic on an insulin pump and take an antidepressant and mood stabilizer. My dentist of 25 years really didn t have an explanation. I haven t had a blood test in a while...generally my Endocrinoligist does full blood screens along with my A-1C-no red flags I had a very slight upper respiratory issue after Christmas, but didn t last long. I know I am not supposed to do this but I had some Augmenten that was prescribed for me this summer for an abdominal cyst and it didn t work but I kept it and probably had 5- 7 days of pills and I took them until I ran out. Otherwise, I have not been seriously ill or started new long term meds. Any thoughts?
