Hello, the first thing I would like to say is thanks for reading my post. I'm freaking out right now and I believe I have just encountered my first anal leakage and I'm only 17. The story is my girlfriend and I were just doing our normal business in our home, then out of no where we started smelling this horrible stench. I assumed it was my dog because he had just come in from outside and was laying on my bed next to us. But I smelt him over and over to see if he was what was causing it, I finally decided that it was not him. So I started thinking if maybe it was me because ever since January 2011, I have been having problems with my rectum starting with constipation and painful bowel movements.
I got checked out by my doctor and she said that I just need more fiber in my diet. So I changed my diet and soon the constipation was over. Then a few months later I had another painful bowel movement so I decided to examine my anus with a mirror. I noticed a purple-ish bump and it scared me. I figured it was a hemorrhoid but I just tried to ignore it because I was too afraid to see the doctor about it. The pain eventually went away and it didn't come back for awhile because football season came and I was doing lots of exercises and drinking lots of water so I think that helped.
Then winter came and my daily exercises stopped because I don't like going out in the cold (I live in Ohio) and I'm a big computer geek so I'm on my butt a lot. I also changed my diet to consuming lots of fast food and snacks and drinking lots of pop with little to no water at all. Now I get stomach pains, itching near my anus and I have very few bowel movements a week.
And now were back to the anal leakage, I went to the bathroom and smelt my boxers and they had the foul odor on it. So I examined my anus again and noticed there was some kind of liquid around it. I jumped in the shower and cleaned it up, then I had a bowel movement. This was all about an hour ago and it all seems to be dry down there for now.
But I am scared because I don't want this to ruin my life, so please if you could help me I would be very thankful.
Sorry for making this into novel, I wanted to provide as much details as possible.
Looks like there is a leakage in your anal wall/valve. That hole/valve might be infected and this fluid (which is pus) is leaking out of that hole. That fluid will have foul smell. This is called fistula. Without any delay schedule an apointment with a colon-rectal specialist to fix the anal valve.
Doctor might give you antibiotics or opt for surgery in this case. If doctor prescribes antibiotics, take it for a week or 2 and if the problem still there you have to go through surgery.
Still you need to avoid constipation, do enema if needed, drink more water. Follow the below link for more information.
