constant burning pain (easily 12 hrs at a time). Before and after I go to the bathroom. Pain meds barely help.

The active ingredient in Bactine is lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic (numbing medication). It works by blocking nerve signals in your body.
Lidocaine topical (for use on the skin) is used to reduce pain or discomfort caused by skin irritations such as sunburn, insect bites, poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, and minor cuts, scratches, hemorrhoids, and burns.
So yes, Bactine may well help this condition.
