As far as the chapped arse, it may well be worth using some sort of barrier cream to protect your skin until you have figured out the problem
hopefully someone else will have a better suggestion!

Now for the skin/rash care, a barrier cream/ointment is a must (do listen to nurse Trinity)...I recommend Critic Aid, I've used it the last 10 years and it keeps me rash free (even after a bladder/bowel accident that is not cleaned up immediately) and helps heal advanced rashes and even stage 2 skin irritations/scratches/etc. Here's a link to the online site I get mine from...btw there are two types of this ointment, standard and anti-fungal; I've used both but have found the anti-fungal more helpful as I sweat a bit in the crouch/anal areas...
Coloplast 7567 Critic-Aid Clear Moisture Barrier Ointment - 6 oz. tube, One tube
Coloplast 7572 Critic-Aid Clear Moisture Barrier Ointment with AntiFungal - 5 oz tube, One tube

I had exactly the same problem recently and it was really disturbing i felt like 'i always wanted to go' but when i did a dig evac nothing was there? over xmas i had a few cognacs [only 3 tumblers] and ate a few licrice allsorts which i love but know they cause bowel problems,it is slowly getting better but its really annoying not to be bale to have a few of lifes little pleasures anymore
Well folks, it seems that my problem with the goo was caused by being backed up. I had the largest/messiest movement and after that it has gone away. Seems my body was just trying to get the poop out. I have adjusted my bowel program and diet and all seems to be going better. I still get a small bit of goo in my drawers every now and then but nothing like it was. thanks for everyone's help. Also, that cream has worked wonder on my backside, it has almost healed up completely and I am now a firm believer in it! take care all!

Well lately I have noticed that after some but not all farts I will have a wet spot in my underwear. It doesn't smell like anything that would normally come out of ones bum, but that is where it is coming from. The wetness has cause the skin around my bunghole to start peeling off, and really reminds me of chapped lips. I have started checking every time I cath and change if there is any moisture. Any one else had this problem? I told my Dr. about it and she didn't seem too concerned and suggested using chapstick on my butt. I am concerned about it because I should not have a chapped ass!
I use a magic bullet suppository and sometimes later on in the day, after it has been broken down, it'll come out of my ass as clear goo. Not sure if that is what it could be in your case. That's just a suggestion.

I'm a c5 tetra, post 10years, so have had a bit of experience ;)
I used to have the 'goo' issue in the early days, and from what i've read and understand this is actually anal mucus produced by the body to aid 'going'. When a suppository is used, the suppository causes irritation, which stimulates the peristalis or bowel contractions as well as the mucus which inturn causes a bowel movement (BM) (usually).
I found that even as an adult using the 10mg Dulcolax / Bisocodyl suppositories was just too much and a few hours after having a BM, the dreaded 'wet fart' would happen. So i switched to a 5mg (peads sup) and it works just as well except i don't get the delayed anal mucus.
6am every other day i have a supp inserted whilst i'm lying on my left side in bed.
About 15 mins later i transfer onto a cammode and within 30 to 40 mins i'm usually done.
I have an inco or eco shet on the bed just incase things start to happen before i transfer.
As always with bowel issues diet is paramount, what you put in has to come out ;)
