I do that occasionally too. First few times I thought it was my heart! It happens when I’m having an acidic reaction to something I’ve eaten.

I would think if you’re still having diarrhea you may still have it, but I’m not a doctor. After my first dose of Vancomycin and still having issues, I was tested and it came out positive. The second time turned out to not be c diff. I asked my doctor about how I could tell and she reminded e that c diff has a certain odor.

No, it’s definitely a chemical burn due to the preparation mixes.

And thank you, @crj. I’m actually using a different prep this time. It wasn’t covered via my insurance and when I told the doc that, they actually gave me a box! I’m hoping for an easier time.

Thank you for your reply. It’s the preparation drugs that cause the burning. This time I’ll be doing 2 days of soft foods then 1 day of liquids, but I’m expecting the same outcome as it’s happened every time.

I need suggestions as I have prep day next Tuesday. I don’t know if anyone else has this issue, but evacuating prep leaves me burned. The skin around the area is totally burnt and painful starting about halfway thru. I’ve tried baby wipes, Vaseline and A&D ointment in the past with no success. Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

And I have relapsed. 🙁. Will be starting a taper for 6 weeks tomorrow (CVS had to order it). So, I’ll miss 2 trips in those 6 weeks. Staying home for 6 more weeks isn’t gong to be fun.
