So it has been a while. Still using calendula and probiotics. I have not had any "bad days" so I'm just gonig to continue this regimen and hope that at some point my condition tapers off. That is the update.
Conclusion, calendula is the best thing for me. However, maybe I can just use ANY ointment with a petrolatum base. The key here is to use an ointment. Preferably something that doesn't smell so... so much like cow manure.
