Alex asks:

Anal leakage. OK, I wipe my ass VERY well -- I mean VERY well -- and without farting, or much activity, I'll go back to the bathroom a few hours later because something feels a little wrong and I wipe my ass and it looks like I didn't wipe it the last time I shat. It's not liquidy or anything, it just looks like I didnt wipe very well. I don't eat any Wow chips, I don't drink, I've never had anal sex... I don't know why this happens. Anyone else have this problem? Is sweat like getting up in my ass and kinda loosening things up or something? Thanks for the help.





Dear Alex,

If you don't eat Wow! chips, don't drink, and don't have anal, exactly what the hell do you do for fun? That's the bigger question here...

Sigh. Seriously, it is probably just mucus or something. I wouldn't worry about it. If you absolutely feel like you have to have a solution, either:

  1. Go see a doctor.
  2. Try Tampax. The string can be discreetly stuffed up your butt to hide it. No one has to know you are troubled by anal leakage.

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.

i've had this problem off and on for several years. the constant wiping, the smell, the people often asking if i farted (i just tell them i eat a lot of mexican food ha). after reading these comments, i can honestly say that my problem seems to be worse when i don't eat healthy. i currently work 76 hours a week and find myself drinking large quantities of energy drinks and starbucks to get myself through the day. i don't have much time to sit down and watch what i eat. i'll start eating right TODAY and get back on here and post my results. until then. . .

Hey guys just found the site. About 4 days ago the area above the but crack and just below the back was really itchy and i felt something hard so i got a paper towel and it ripped off and it started bleeding alot and today i got my friend to look at it and he said there was like a small hole there. It isnt painful nor does it itch all the time it just itches maybe like 2 or 3 times in the day. We removed the scab today and there was what looked like pus but i had put neosporin on it after i found it..

anyone have any idea what this could be?

At the beginning of the article poonurse offered the best advice in this regard: go see a doctor. If this does not heal up in a timely manner, have a physician look at it.

hey Anonymous Coward (not verified) -- 07.09.2006
this sounds like an anal fistula, it is actually a small hole and pus and stuff can leak out of it, u should go see a doctor. it can be repaired surgically.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Yea but it has only bled the first time i ripped the scab off, and when i was wiping the blood, it made wierd noises..since then it really hasnt discharged anything... i researched anal fistula and there was no swelling or pain, just very little itching.. but i will call the doctor tomorrow

To all of you above who insist on keeping your heads in your asses (so-to-speak) about serious medical symptoms, take a look at the tragic results of this in the story recently posted here, Life with ostomy. TBW is right: You need to go to a doctor, a competent one. Ignoring these things will not make them go away.

Ok so i went to the doctor and he squeezed some pus out of it and was surprised that it didnt hurt when he did that because he says some of the pus pockets can be golf ball sized and that can cause them to hurt when sitting. He said the reason it probably didnt hurt me is because it either drained it self or that it wasnt a fully developed pus pocket.. he said it probably originated from a scratch and that all the bacteria in that area probably infested it and caused a minor infection..

anyways he classified it as a pilonidal abcess and prescribed Septra to help drain/heal it

anonymous coward-- i have the same problem. another thing that accompanies it is lots of sweating around there. I don't have probs with AL but almost every time i sit down there is a wet line left on the chair, and often when i wear khakis i get a sweat stain on my ass.. anyone know any remedies for this??

Fuzzy Butt's picture

Issue: BM's that need wiping and wiping. Often just jump in the shower to get clean, or have to come back later and re-wipe. Played with diet to see what it might be. Seems I've found the culprit - vitamins, Centrum Silver. Have not had any for 5 days now. For first time in years I've had 4 consecutive perfect BM's, one wipe, nothing on the TP, no racing stripe in the knickers. Feel GREAT! It was the damned vitamins! Anyone else had this experience? Thanks! s/Mike (Fuzzy Butt)

i think you guys really need to take a look at your diets. i have had a lot of anal leakage, but i know what causes it - chocolate milk. why? not sure, but i suspect it's because of the substance carrageenan. this substance is also put into soymilk and ice cream. so if you're eating those things, cut it out and see if it helps. also drink water. this keeps things pure in your digestive system, as anal leakage is just oily substance that your body isn't digesting properly. like mentioned, maybe it's also a high-fat or alcohol problem, or another beverage. for people with itching problems (hemmorhoids?) who don't want to use other over the counter products: cover your anus in petroleum jelly. this soothes the area. i found this as a cure for hemmorhoids on webmd.com

FIBER AND DIET

A someone who has been cured of this problem, in a nutshell I think its caused by diet. (In most cases)
Points to note

1. I went to see a doctor and a colo rectal surgeon (after putting it off for a long time) I also had an enema (Yikes) The test turned up negative and they both could find nothing wrong with me. The specialists advice was to eat more fibre. As simple as it sounds, this reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyy works!!!!!!!!!

2 Cutout dairy too, you may be lactose intolerant.

3 Drink heaps of water. Especially when you're eating a high fibre meal. The fibre needs water to be effective, and I've found that it needs to be taken at the same time. Its no good taking fibre without water in the morning and drinking your 8 glasses a day in the afternoon and evening.

4. Supplements that work:
Herbal Fiberblend. The reason this stuff is so good is that you don't have to eat any other fiber for it to be very effective. You just take 2 doses a day and you can continue with your regular diet.It works fast too. It is a good way to find out if lack of fibre is the issue.

Metamucil - This is what the specialist recommended. Not as good as Fiberblend but does help. (You need to incorporate other sources of fibre in your diet with this)

Psyllium - You'll read that this is very good for bowel issues. I bought it once and it was really hard to drink in its natural state. Both Fiberblend and metamucil have psyllium but its processed so its a lot easier to drink.

High fiber breakfast cereals. These help alot. Muesli that combines rolled oats and wheat bran are very good. Again, drink a couple glasses of water immediately before and after.

Potatoes - Eat them with their skins and a couple of glasses of water

5 Keep a record of everything you eat - Not absolutely nesecary but can be very helpful in pinpointing what works and what doesn't. Also keep a record of the changes to stools.

Hope this helps

sorbitol hater is a genius. Take out sorbitol from ur diet and your AL will soon vasnish. to those of you who have dicovered dairy is not good for your diet,its more then likely you are lactose intolerant.

Fiberman's picture

I've had a mild anal leakage problem for some time (slight leakage 2-3x/day). My doctor recommended fiber, so I increased my diatary fiber to 30g/day but to no avail. Stopping caffeine helped some but not enough. Finally I tried powdered psyllium (1 teaspoon well mixed in 8 oz. H20 [drink immediately after mixing] in the AM) and it immediately solved 95% of the problem. You could do it 1 or 2x/day. Konsyl is a good brand; Metamusal may be comparable; or a food coop may sell it in bulk for 1/2 the price. What helps one person may not help another, but this is worth trying. Good luck.

Cowardly Lion's picture

Like a small percentage of you. I don't get leakage to the point that it's running off my legs. But I do sense the wetness there from time to time and have to run off to clean myself off. What's strange is that I get complaints about the smell of poop everyday, and I mean EVERYDAY, which gets me paranoid and have to go check for leakage. However, most of the time, there is no leakage at all. I noticed that a couple of posts from people with similar experiences. Please post some updates on your current situation as it may help others like me. Thanks.

I've just started taking Metamusil and will provide and update of the results (hopefully positive).

smelly-butt's picture

First i feel bad saying this but, I'm glad i'm not alone.
Second, thanks to everybody for posting this information i will try the high fiber diet.
I dont eat "bad" and this problem has persisted for many years even back in early years of High school (class of 96). It will not go away on its own. The constant "whats that smell" is very embarassing. I think maybe the sweating might be a by-product of anxiety caused by the embarassment. who knows.
Hopefully the fiber helps.

Depressed no more's picture

Hi,

I recently found the solution to my 12 year problem.

I got Internal Hemmorhoids from lifting for a kitchen company. Only after 10 years did I realise that I had a problem as it progressed. The last two years I have been depressed and never seen anyone, or went outside, not once, Until one day, the Hemmorhoid prolapsed, allowing me to see it. But, to my amazement, I was not leaking anymore????? It was dry for 4 days while it had been outside my anus, but it was sore, but I didn't care, no more stink arse :D...

But, when it went back inside, I then had to wipe my arse every morning like I just past a stool :(... Like some here, Marie, and Stinky Butt :(....This is me all over.

What I did. Went and got a referral to see an Gastroenteritis doctor, then told him the story, he didn't want to hear it, just that he was going to check it out with a camera (money hungry poofter). Anyways, we done the test, and found that I did had "Internal Hemmorhoids". 2 Weeks later, at the consultation, he said "there was nothing to be concerned about, but you have Internal Hemmorhoids"...I'm like yeah, that's wtf I came here for. Then he said, you don't need surgery, and if we did do it, it would come back anyways. I then sat for a moment trying to think, WTF could it be then, after all this time, he then asked "WHAT's THE PROBLEM"... I thought, ahh, okay, you are concerned, I told him the story, and he said, hmmm, that's not a Hemmorhoids symptom, and you should go to this doctor. I seen that doctor, and another, and another, and another, until I said, FeCk THIS!!! Then I thought back to that day where my Internal Hemmorhoid prolapsed!!

So I went back to the first doctor, and told him, it must be the Hemmorhoids, because I was dry for days on end while it was outside (prolapsed). He said, "no no", I said "yes yes", he said, "okay, I'll do surgery, I'm here to help you, don't get angry"...So he injected my Hemmorhoid, (the main one which was already small, but at the base of my Sphincter,) and "MAGIC" happened that day, I haven't had the problem for 3 months and counting, and I had to find if someone else has had these symptoms to try help you, because I know what it's like, I have lived with it for over 12 years :( Every since I was 14) Sitting in class, and then finally sitting in the office at my first job wasn't so good.

I'm not saying that you guys have Hemmorohoids, but I would say, check it out anyways. AND DO NOT LET YOUR DOCTOR SAY, "YES, YOU HAVE THEM, BUT THEIR NO CONCERN"...Tell him to shut his stupid face and tell him you want the best painless treatment. Mine was "Injections."

I know how you must feel, but you gotta do it, my life went downhill because being around people, (and as stinky butt said,) work can be shameful when everyone starts looking for the person who farted, and then someone says, "who the feck shit themselves"...

Suck it up, go see the doctor and don't put your life on hold like I did.

Good Luck

Dallas.

I also have suffered from this, especially
when outdoors in the summer - cutting grass, etc. I've not seen a doctor about this, but have tried tampons, and boy does this work!
the Tampax pearl seem especially effective, because they have a unique braid where the string meets the tampon, that seems to catch all of the weeping wetness. they are also one of the best as far as insertion, too, because of the positive-grip plastic applicator.
be prepared to try the non-deodorant ones in case of irritation.

My problem is after a I poop I find myself constantly wiping and wiping until no sign of poop on my toilet paper. Then about an hour or so later I feel a burn feeling so I wipe again and more trace of poop on my toilet paper. I can't figure out why I find myself keep wiping and wiping, can someone please tell me what I should do. I do eat fastfood about 3 times a week and don't eat too much fiber maybe a banana 3 times a week for fiber.

Hey guys I feel your pain because I have been experiencing something quite like this recently. Ever since I was a litte kid I have found that my buttocks usually sweats with exercise and any other hard activity. Just reciently i have noticed it sweating more and more everyday with everyday functions. At first I thought that I was screwed because the first thing that came to mind was anal leakage but I did a test on my self that ruled out the wet substance was coming from my buttocks and not my anus. The condition hyperhidrosis is a excessive sweat condition that affecte millions americans everyday. It usually occurs under the armpits but can occur in the buttocks. After I have said this I want you guys to go back and retract your steps and make sure your leakage is coming from your anus and that it is not sweat from you buttocks. Is this happening to anyone.

It seems people are posting about various conditions. My post is with reference to a clear mucus not solved with fiber.

I am 23 years old, in good health, not too poor of an eater, ex smoker, and moderate drinker. A few years ago I was feeling that it was tough to wipe clean. It seemed as if a clear fluid was coming out slowly. It would leave water marks on dark chairs. Sometimes there was even a bubbling or oozing feeling. The condition became worse. I now have to keep tissue paper in all of the time and sometimes it gets a little itchy (from the dry paper I assume). There is no stool coming out unless I have the runs and then only a tiny bit that comes with the mucus. It got much better when I quit smoking and drank less. I never drink caffeine because it makes me develop cysts on my ears and face. I am on no medications except topical acne treatments. I went to a doctor and he put me on excessive amounts of bulking fiber. This helped a little but didn't seem to address the root of the problem. The only advice I have is to quit smoking and eat healthy. However, the condition is still so untolerable that I must keep cotton or tissue in 24 hours a day. I am continuing to see a GI doctor and will have some invasive tests (yay) soon to test for polyps and such soon but he doubts this is the cause. I will keep posting on my progress and if anyone has solved this please post.

Smelly1's picture

It seems there are a couple of different problems being posted on here. One is the wetness from the butt and the other is the odour from the butt. I have the odour problem. Like others have posted, you really get paranoid after hearing so many people ask "who farted" or "did someone just shit themselves".
This problem for me started about 10 years ago and seems to flare up but can also go away for a while with no changes in what I am eating or drinking. I think stress plays a big role although I still can't really figure it out. I have tried increasing fibre and drinking more water, that seemed to work for a while. It doesn't work as well anymore so I am trying more things now.
I have tried charcoal capsules, internal deoderizers such as Devrom, chloyrophyl. Probiotics, yogurt, mint teas.....you name it, I've tried it. My newest experiment is Papaya Enzymes, thinking maybe this smell leaking out has something to do with poor digestion.
Who knows. All I know is I am sick of it, sick of being paranoid at work and in social situations.
I hope something works soon.

THE ANSWER!'s picture

OKAY! i found out the answer to the problem for me! Tonight was the first time I pooped right in weeks! All my life, i've been a huge lover of milk, ice cream, and other dairy products. I had the courage to let my parents know about my problem and they said, it could be that you are lactose intolerant. And this was 100% true. I'm 17 years old, and why all the sudden I am lactose intolerant...nobody really knows. But, you guys should all try and cut out ALL dairy(milk, cheese, ice cream) and see if that makes any difference. For those of you that have a more serious problem and a true medical condition, good luck, because I know somewhat how it feels.

It sounds like the moisture problem has various causes and various solutions. I think every one should eat a lot of fiber, whether they have a leaky stank hole or not. If that doesn't work, cut out the dairy. As for you stankity ass people......WASH YO ASS! DAMN!

Regarding just the sweating issue - I have hyperhydrosis - I sweat more than other people but especially in the crack, just above the anus. This is the only area where excessive sweating is actually a problem for me, and soaks right through clothing. I was getting Botox for a while, which helped greatly. But have moved away and guess what? The sweating returned as bad as ever. Fortunately for me, Botox was covered by my old plan. I must get over the emabarrassement - again - and find another doctor here willing to treat me.

Fixed's picture

I had this problem for years and have now fixed it! It has been maybe 3 months since I have last had this problem. I too thought I had the feeling of a sweaty ass, I even had a operation for heamorroids. The thing that fixed it was fibre and stopping dairy. I did both those things and have not had a problem since. On top of that I have lost weight and feel much better. I recommend this strategy to anyone. To poo problem free...what a feeling! Must try

Hey, I have a lot of poo problems. I am constantly having bowel movements, diarreah sometimes, other times huge loads, and constant farting. It's like somedays I have to put the fan on all the time and open up all the windows and still.

Also, my bowel movements are irregular and very frequent mixed with infrequent at other moments. My diet isn't unusual and it's been this way for years now.

Would any of you know anything about this? and how to improve this?

Cowardly Lion's picture

Hey Fixed (and others like you),

How long did it take you to be 'fixed'? I've been on Metamusil for a little over 2 weeks now and haven't seen any obvious improvements. People still harass me about fart and makes juvenile poo jokes :( , while others are having violent alergic reactions whenever they're around me.

Pack Sakrete up your ass and quit youre goddam whining.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I've been reading people's suggestions for a couple of months now, and still havn't gotten rid of my problem.

It really does ruin your life in some ways. It started when I was in 8th grade. I got up after sitting on a blue metal chair and there was a large puddle the length of your crack left on the seat. Whenever I want to stand up from a chair, I "slide" off the chair to try and obsorb anything left behind. Then I'm constantly worried that I have a huge wet mark on the back of my pants.

I don't think it smells, it could. But I don't think it's noticable. I do drink a lot of soda (about 1-2 cans of Pepsi a day sometimes more.) It's really hard to try and get more fiber in your diet especially when you eat at school. I'm going to try and stop eating so much dairy and in the meantime I'll keep praying every night (I really have started to pray to God it stops.)

I wish everyone the best of luck in getting rid of this condition. I think stress has a LOT to do with it. It only occurs when I'm at school or doing some kind of exercise.

Cowardly Lion's picture

Well, the ones who don't have odour issues are lucky. The ones that do, like myself, are in deeper sh*t for sure. It's just a crazy mental burden. Stuffing things up your ass is just not a smart thing to do in the long run, I'm no doctor but I'm pretty sure you'll rupture something and make things a lot worst. But hey, what the heck do I know, I'm still stuck with this damn problem.

Miguel's picture

I feel extremely lucky to have found all the comments in this section of this site.

I have often dwelled on Eddie Murphy's joke from his HBO show Delirious, "You know what really make me mad is when your ass
don't cooperate with you and clench up and break the shit in half."

"You be mad as a motherfucker too, because you know
you got to wipe your ass for, like, five hours and shit, right?"

I quit drinking alcohol about 4 years ago. I thought all my problems would go away then but au contraire!! I noticed when I ate at one particular Mexican restaurant that I would be a little constipated, it just happened to be my wife's favorite or I would just avoid the place.

I also had a job that required me to stay in my seat solving a time sensitive issue and learned to hold my movements past the time I think was healthy.

I identify with sooo many of the other comments listed here. I guess I first noticed it when there were more track marks then usual on my underwear, so much that my wife felt the need to educate my on how to wipe my ass.

She tried to tell me that sometimes it’s required to not just wipe but to poke some paper all the way up in there to make sure I got it all.

It doesn't matter, I could wipe for 20 mins, dry wipes or wet wipes, I could make sure I'm completely clean and 30 mins, 2 hours later my cheeks are filled with shit.

It got painful, it was irritating. I learned to pay attention to that little tickling feeling and go wipe before it turned to itching then pain. If ignored it would eat the layer of skin away and would be very hard to get any relief later.

It was too embarrassing to talk about. I tried talking to doctors but the added alcohol abuse bought up all kinds of other fears. I also want to thank Saturday Night Live for the whole 10% less Anal Leakage because then at least I had a word for it. Which in turn led me to you fine folks.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to who ever suggested a higher fiber diet. I rejected this idea many time because in my opinion the stool was too loose already. I bought some Metamucil, tried it the suggested 3 times daily. It was less then 36 hours later I actually had a clean bowel movement. I tried to wipe but nothing was there, and out of habit I came back an hour later and still nothing. OMGoodness the joy I felt!

I have gotten lazy and reduce my Metamucil down to once a day and the symptoms come back. So now I know what to do. 3 times a day is great but at least twice a day, once in the morning and once @ night keeps me clean.

Just in case there are any doubters out there, I wanted to share yet another success story and show my appreciation for this site, and for the people that were here before me.

This comment is for the people with the sweat issue, not anal leakage; fiber is obviously the solution for that.
Having recently researched this issue (sweaty issue), I came across an article entitled, "Pilonidal Sinus And Prolonged Sexual Stimulation:
The Poisonous Hormones." The entire thesis of the article (as a result of a study done by surgeons in Saudi Arabia) is that the sweating in the buttock area may be caused by hormones. The sweat glands in that area are called apocrine glands and are controlled/stimulated by androgens (hormones).

" These glands are under androgen stimulation and when the circulating androgen level is high the secretion of these glands increases, resulting in excess sweating in the buttock area. This sweat contain excess electrolytes, the composition of sweat varies greatly from person to person, time and site. The sweat is hypo tonic, the most important constituents of the sweat are Na, K (positively charged),& Cl, also urea & lactose ( 1 )."
The article goes on to say that stimulation
threshold is lower for men, particularly single men, since men are more visually stimulated (e.g. some men are stimulated by simply looking at a woman), but women are also affected. Ergo, the solution/cure they found with their subjects was as simple as a change in behaviors, such as avoiding those stimulants as much as possible (i.e. websites, movies and the like). No surgical or other solutions were necessary. It was one example of a "disease" that was cured simply by a person changing their behavior. Additionally, for unexplainable reasons, they also found that a shower cleanses the body of the effects of those hormones.
I wonder what others with the buttock sweat issue think of these findings in relation to their individual experiences. I'd like to hear back your thoughts. Here's the website where I found this article.

If that doesn't work, try googleling "Pilonidal Sinus And Prolonged Sexual Stimulation."

Hope this helps someone.
