bung blood: cut and chafe

Jess asks:

When I wipe (normally like 4-5 times), I try not to wipe neither too hard nor too soft so I can get it all cleaned out. But a few times when I wipe, it looks like blood. I'm thinking that around the hole where it's all brown, I have a cut. Did my poop form a needle or something and make a cut? Because sometimes it feels pokey when it's coming out. What is wrong?

Dear Jess,

Thanks for the question.

It sounds like you have an irritation down there. It could be anything from just minor chafing to an actual fissure to something more ominous.

You can try taking a stool softener, increasing your water consumption, and getting tons of fiber into your diet.

But any time you see blood when you wipe, it merits a visit to the doctor to get it checked out.

So go!

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Got a question for her?

Yeah, I have had that happen a few times and it sucks big time.
When I get that, I have to switch to ultra soft quilted TP (Not as effective, but the impact is non-existant) reduce the amount of hot sauce I add to food, and I have to get new undies.

Good luck to you, butt blood is a scary thing.

Get a softer type of toilet paper. You probably have a sensative asshole.

Wow. There's an oxymoron!

Sometimes it's just a cut that heals itself in time, right? Cause I used to wipe and see red, but it went away eventually.

I know I've shat some scratchers, before! It's a bit alarming. Everything is sliding along swimmingly, when all of a sudden, "OW! Hey! What was THAT?!?" And then it's over. It's like pooping out an open staple.

LMAO at 'those damn square shits', this is why im looking at this site, must have eaten glass or something sharp could feel it was goin to happen. Dont normally look at the contents of my bog roll but knew it was that again. Better give up my job eating light bulbs.

haha, i have to admit i was reading along too this morning because i found another one of those blood spots, think i wipe too hard occasionally and dry out my skin which eventually cracks. It always goes away after a day ago. But the reason i posted was because of the "square shits" comment...thanks to you i have milk to clean off my laptop this morning ;)

My ass bled once. The doc said you can eat things that will poke a hole in your ass sometimes.

I've had the same problem. I'm a cheek-spreader, and I think the combination of that and my obsession with obtaining a clean wipe before I stand up (which usually requires 4-6 wipes), made a crack appear which bleeds when I crap. Sometimes it's ok, but other times I get worried. My method for fixing the problem when it occurs is: one wipe with tp, one or two with those moistened Cottonelle wipes, then a clean-up dry wipe. And I have to stop spreading :( I would go to the doctor, but I don't have insurance and I'm not going to pay out the ass for a tiny butt crack...
