So!
...I'm utterly alone in this, aren't I?  :'(

You are not alone.  I do not have experience with the kind of cheese you're discussing but I feel for you all the same.  I am currently on a medication that can give me unfortunate GI problems seemingly out of nowhere.  Just yesterday I felt my stomach rumbling and then before I had time to think "I should probably go to the ladies room." well, I needed to change my clothes.  :-[  I cleaned up as best I could in the bathroom and then texted my boss that I was leaving for the day as these incidents are never a single occurrence and I was resigned to spending the rest of the day in my bathroom at home.

People act like these sorts of things don't happen but it's not like you did this to yourself on purpose, nor did have any idea that this would happen to you.  It is called an accident for a reason and while embarrassing, please don't take it too badly.   [Feces] happens.

Of course not!

Early this fall, I was sick. I couldn't really decide which end to put over the toilet, because as soon as something came out one end, it would come out the other end too. The upper end finally stopped, but it took about another week for my backside to stop leaking at very inopportune moments. Like when I sneezed. Did I mention this was fall, and my allergies are really bad in the fall? It wasn't fun at all.

Due to fever and various meds - I am getting about one minute of "warning" to head to the bathroom right now.  If anyone is in the one closest to me, I will be out of luck...

Fortunately, so far I haven't had to do laundry.

I have blessed my foresight in getting another 24 rolls of toilet tissue just before Christmas...as I'm not the ONLY one with the same strain of flu.

I have 80 rolls of TP currently, and am very glad as my diabetes meds and antibiotics are having a fight resulting in frequent bathroom trips.

I thoroughly recommend keeping a complete change of clothing in the car.

I used to do that and need to start doing so again.  It was great when I worked with animals.  you  never knew when you might suddenly a t-shirt without any cat pee on it!   ::)

I've also had a couple of, shall we say, wardrobe malfunctions.  I'm lucky in that I live only 5 minutes from my office.  I've only had one incident at work, fortunately.  My incidents have been few and far between so I haven't yet resorted to carrying a change of clothes in my car.  I do always have sanitary pads in my purse so if my undies only are compromised, I can use one of those, in a pinch.

I don't know what Raclette cheese is - I've been to a Raclette 'party' but I don't recall there being cheese.  I do have issues with cheese whiz.  So much so that I don't eat it any more, long before I would have dropped it because of its chemical composition and lack of nutritional value.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

That's when the bathroom trashcan comes into use for something other than trash.  Sit on the toilet as normal, and use the trashcan for the upper end.  If you're lucky, someone has lined it with a plastic bag first for easy cleanup.

Even if it isn't lined - if you've bought a smaller trash can for the bathroom - it can go in the dishwasher to be well and truly cleaned - detergent, really hot water, bleach, and a good rinse with more hot water.

Been there, done that after VorGuy didn't tell me he'd thawed pork (ribs, I think) on the kitchen counter all day for a cookout, only to put them in the fridge when there weren't as many people there as we'd planned for...I didn't cook the ribs for three days.

We had chicken noodle soup for Thanksgiving that year....as the party had been the weekend before Thanksgiving - come to think of it - that might have been WHY so many people were out of town.  Back then, sometimes school was out for a whole week instead of Thanksgiving Thursday and the next day (Black Friday was not yet invented - it was over thirty years ago).

But I never let him thaw pork again....

I have been battling several things over the past few weeks and have repeatedly been the victim of what my husband calls "sharts".  If you can't figure it out, it is a fart with a ninja solid attached to it.

Or, you can do what I did one miserable occasion after I had made a thorough mess of myself- just curl up in the tub until you have nothing left to evacuate, shower in as hot of water as you can stand, bleach the tub and crawl to bed.

It's not gross yet, but I am anticipating grossness.

I've got a largish boil forming on my butt. It wasn't clear to me what it was until this morning in the shower - I assumed I had a bruise there from being body checked/dragged/tripping over a dog. Nope, it's a boil. It's about 1.5" in diameter right now, but who knows how big it'll get.

I will keep you all updated.

Yay!

My groin abcess (aka "boingy sac of blood") keeps having fun without me at night.  It apparently refilled while I wasn't paying attention and burst again overnight. No sacs-O-fun, but lotsa blood.

Well, since I'm in good company here...  :P

I occasionally get cysts in my armpit and groin, sized anywhere from a pea to (on one memorable occasion) as big as the last joint of my thumb. They're not big deep pimples - I get those too! - they're full of blood. They hurt like *expletive* when there's any pressure on them (which is just spiffy when they're in the fold between groin and thigh), never develop anything that looks like a head, and tend to just suddenly release with no warning. I was poking around at one a few months ago and had decided that it wasn't going to go away any time soon when SPLAT! I shot the bathroom wall (two feet away) and my hand with rather a lot of nearly-black blood. ;D

I have one now. There will be no photos, since it's not in my armpit. It's nearly as big as the biggest I've ever had, and if I'm sitting up in the right position to be driving a car it's under quiiiiiite a bit of pressure. I hope it lets go soon... and I hope it does it when I'm at home, because I do not want to get a sudden patch of blood in the crotch of my jeans when I'm out in public. :-X :o

Giant cyst on my back below my left shoulder. However, it is just irritating, it won't go away. I need to have it removed surgically.

On a plus, I start biology class, mortuary anthropology and Life and Death in ancient Egypt. It should be interesting. Since I can't wear open toed shoes to two of those classes, I will be carrying a full change of clothes every day.

WELP. Grossness has ensued!

I went to the doctor yesterday about the 'cyst' I mentioned up-thread, because it had gotten BIGGER than the joint at the end of my thumb and was definitely putting a crimp in walking, sitting, driving, you name it. I expected to get a prescription for antibiotics, and hoped that it would be a bit better today, since family plans involved me driving for over an hour and a half both today and tomorrow to do a favour for my parents.

Not so much. My GP's intern diagnosed a particular type of… er… 'girly' cyst, and referred me to hospital for minor-but-kinda-urgent surgery to have it drained.

It actually wasn't what she thought (as I worked out for myself by Googling 'bartholin cyst' on my phone while sitting around waiting - be aware, if you go looking any images you find will definitely NOT be work safe); it was in fact an infected hair follicle that was working its way up to being a nasty abscess. It's a good thing she referred me for surgery anyway, as the hospital surgical resident agreed that not only did it need to be drained, I needed I.V. antibiotics and a bunch more pills to take home and take for the next week.

End result? Eight hours sitting around in various departments of the hospital, minor surgery that got me praised for being brave when I only swore a little as the local anaesthetic got put in (and laughed at when I switched from actual swear words to saying "FRUITCAKE!" when it got really sore), a lot of blood, some pus, and a little hard core that the resident made sure I got a good look at - we were chatting before the actual surgery and it turns out she likes looking at cyst drainage videos on YouTube too! ;D There will be NO photos of the abscess itself, because none have been taken and none will be :P but I do have a photo of the port they put in my arm - anyone interested in that? 8)

(As for the errand I was going to run today and tomorrow that involved driving quite a bit both days… well, given that I got home at 2AM and don't plan to put on pants today, let alone leave the house, the Good Ethnic Boy has kindly volunteered to take over. :P)
