Iodine and Olive or Flaxseed Oil

I use Iodine mixed with Aloe Vera gel and use a q-tip to apply, this keeps the area clean. The idea is to stop any infection from starting. After BM I soak in warm water then clean with damp cotton then apply the mixture and haven't had any flare ups in months. As far as how long it takes to heal it depends, for me I've had the condition for years but it is so much better now then in the past so I'm not sure if it will ever go away but I'm happy with the progress now.
