My experience with treating butt irritations and cleanliness after soft stools, I take a syringe and flush with water to clean out the butt canal until it comes clean, wiping after each flush. It works great on removing what is left in the anal canal. Try it. It works. I have never had any problems since I started doing this years ago. No irritation, or itching. Gently squeeze water at the entrance, no insertion needed. I use the small bulb type syringe where you can remove the stem. I don't use the baby ear syringe, the other that I mentioned worked better for me.
