• Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes.

Any experience with this? Helpful hints or tips more than welcome.
Partner is struggling at the minute with it as it's been a real pain in the @ss... literally.
- he has just started Prednisolone 40mg which will hopefully help!

Thanks in advance!
The oral pred should help. I was also given prednisolone suppositories for a month alongside the tablets and they really helped - better than the steroid enemas which can go up too far and miss the rectal inflammation.

I'm sorry, I just saw this. As you can see, we have an Ulcerative Proctitis support group here on the forum and I encourage you to click on the link I have here in my signature for it.

I was diagnosed with UP in 2013. Was your partner just diagnosed and what medications is he on? Nitty is correct, the suppositories are a necessity for this on top of his oral medications. Another thing that might help could be some wet wipes while he's flaring rather than TP. It will make things a little more comfortable especially if he's on the toilet so often.

I am enclosing a couple of websites for you that have some good info. Feel free to contact me for more info.
