You should start taking a probiotic for at least the next 30 days. It is important to alleviate your constipation by softening your stool. Use Laxette syrup, 20ml, twice daily in combination with Softlax, 2 tablets at night for at least 2 weeks. If your symptoms worsen and you are still not passing stools, you should consult your doctor.

Apply Apor cream to the area of irritation, twice daily for at least 10 days.
