How would adult diapers help my IBS if they can tell its me pooping?

Protect your clothes: If you occasionally leak, thru a wet toot or difficulty making it to the can on time this might help you temporarily. I can't see any adult walking around with the same load a 3yo won't live with.

Can you tell me if I could use baby diaper ointment on my rashy skin?

Depends on rash: Many diaper rash ointments contain zinc oxide, which is an effective treatment for many irritative rashes that occur. It is harmless unless you think there is an infection along with the rash. Keep in mind if it's not improving in a week to seek further evaluation/treatment.

What is wrong with me do I have a fetish if I feel more secure in wearing an adult diaper and sucking on a pacifier?

What is wrong with me do I have a fetish if I feel more secure in wearing an adult diaper and sucking on a pacifier?

Desire for care: Though I certainly may be wrong in your situation, it seems to me that your wearing a diaper and sucking on a pacifier is probably not so much a fetish as an expression of your desire for someone to care for you like a baby, providing all your needs. Psychotherapy may be worth your consideration.

I give myself enemas at least 4 times a week! I tend to expell them into an adult diaper! Is this safe?

I give myself enemas at least 4 times a week! I tend to expell them into an adult diaper! Is this safe?

Enemas: The only medical risk I can think of with frequent enemas is getting trauma to the lining of the rectum and then getting an infection from the irritated skin. I worry about water overload as well with such frequent introduction of water with the enema. As a physician I am concerned enough that maybe you should respond with the reason you are doing this so often...

Irritation vs yeast: The two most likely causes are irritation or yeast infection. A soothing cream or ointment will usually help with irritation. An anti-fungal cream (clotrimazole, miconazole, terbinafine, and others) can help with yeast. There are powders that can help also, like zeasorb af which contains an anti-fungal component.

Adult diaper rash: Is the adult in diapers or is the rash in the underwear area so u are calling it diaper rash? If there is too much moisture in the area or if person is diabetic/not cleaning well after using the rest room, these are areas to be addressed first. Try air drying after washing with luke warm water&have cotton undergarments. If in diaper for a reason, change as soon as it is wet. Try naystatin ointment.
