anal leakage
I have had this issue for the last three months. I have had four hemorrhoid surgeries and one cyst surgery three months ago. Now I have the leak and want to fix it now! I will try all of the idea's you've suggested. This issue is so gross, and embarrasing. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

I feel leakage too, i have no idea whether i have hemrrhoids or not though, i experiece excactly what you mean. I have had this happening for about a year now, recently i found two bumps in my anus, they are purple and one is about the size of a pea. I do not bleed when i have a bowel movement and i do not feel pain. Is it a hemrrhoid. Im 19, and dont worry about other people smelling you dude. Your always your worst critic.
Hope everything goes good.

I would have your problem checked out. I wish I had an answer, but I can tell you rectal surgery is very painful..so be sure to research your options. I found my first doc on the list of top doc's in the area. I needed another to correct the first problem, which took three + more procedures. So, ask around before you do anything.

anal leakage and hemorrhoids - glad i'm not alone
I'm 23 and I've had this EXACT problem for about a year now. For a whole year before that I noticed itchiness and discomfort and self-diagnosed hemorrhoids. Now I KNOW that's what it is because I still have the itchiness and discomfort and I have anal leakage with every bowel movement every single day. I work and go to school full time so it's particularly difficult for me to handle because I am not at home from 8 am until 10 pm. I often use rolled up toilet paper that I change a couple hours after a bm because by that time it stops. I carry baby wipes with me in my purse which helps with any malodorous residue. I still think I'm too young for this! And I hope that it won't last forever!

I'm a twenty-year-old girl and I have a similar problem. After a bowel movement, I wipe and wipe with toilet paper, then with wet wipes, then dry off, and later on, there's still fecal matter when I check myself! It causes itching and burning -- I hate it! I went to the doctor and she said there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with my anus. I'm unhappy and at a loss and I feel gross half the time because I can't get clean.
How long will this last?? Ugh!

re: Help with your problems
use vaseline on the anal area after the bowel movement..then a xylocaine cream (must be prescribed by a dr.). Vaseline helps keep the itching under control and helps quickly clean off the BM. Keep a jar in your purse (they make a small size for the purse) and a jar in your bathroom. But, you need to insist on seeing an anorectal doctor ASAP! Don't be embarrassed and ashamed of the problem. It's more common than you think. Keep using the baby wipes but use fragrance free. I'd advise to never use a fragrance around such delicate tissues. If you must, to feel better use baby powder or a feminine spray around the to of the buttocks but not on the anal area until you see the doctor. But get to the doctor. or it's not going to go away. Also watch your diet. Stay away from spicy foods and food's heavy in sodium (salt) If you see the right dr. he can fix the problem for you and it will be gone forever OK? So calm down and get to the right doctor.

Re: Hemorrhoids and anal leakage
Hi there,
Surfer27 here. I found out, alot of the reasons, us as a community are having problems with this anal leakage and odour, is because the surgeon, who examined me about this just recently on Thursday, November 25,2010 said that, it was quite possibly the result of extra mucous from the bowels, coming out more than usual and that is why he said, that there is alot of that clear discharge from the bowels! I am only going on, what this hospital surgeon told me! He also said that, when a person has extra mucous that seeps out of the bowels, in the form of a clear discharge, that it can cause an odour on the skin, if hemorrhoids are involved! This surgeon, couldn't explain to me, why a discharge on the hemorrhoids causes a foul odor, but he said that it had something to do with the skin and that, was all he knew! He also said it could be the result of having Irritable Bowel Syndrome or possibly Chrone's Disease, but the IBS and Chrone's thing, he was speculating on! Sorry, I couldn't be of more help! That is all I know, from this surgeon I visited last Thursday. Hopefully, this provides some details into this mysterious anal leakage!

Have to highlight a few people's best suggestions that I've also done that work well for me:
1. Feminine pads or tampons, not inserted, but just outside of the anus it will really absorb leakage (alternatively, roll TP into a small tube shape and lay it vertically between the cheeks). Do this until you can get the issue under control.
2. Four or more glasses of water each day (avoid sodas), eat lots of fiber, and avoid fried greasy foods whenever possible.
3. I know everyone says this, but keep your weight under control and exercise - light to moderate exercise is so beneficial to the body and mind in so many ways that you cannot imagine.

I have a foul ador coming from my anus after eating spicy or greasy food. This made my life MISERABLE!!!
I went to the doctor today. He did a colonoscopy and a gastroscopy and found that I had gastritis and internal hemorrhoid. Also I often have nausea and feel-like vomiting whenever I travel. The doctor prescribed me some proctosedyl suppositories (internal hemorrhoid), some Flagyl and nexium tablets alongside a soluble called Fybogel (for gastritis).
Hope this may be helpful for anyone suffering from same symptoms like me.

I also have been inflicted with this issue for the last six months. I'm 36.

I've had piles for some time but fortunately no real problems until recently.

The main problem is the smell which has really affected my working life; receiving peculiar looks from your colleagues is something I struggled to cope with and as a result I'm currently not working until I resolve the unpleasant odour issue.

My bottom often feels wet but I'm confident it's not sweat. I'm reasonably sure it's some sort of leakage but not feaces, it could be some sort of skin condition but I favour the leakage explanation.

I guess my main question to fellow sufferers is how do you cope with the funny looks? Do you broach the subject with a colleague?!

I have an appointment with a gastro specialist next month so maybe I can start to make progress.

My solution
I've had issues on and off for the past few years, but recently it has gotten really bad up until a couple weeks ago. Many have mentioned changing your diet and drinking more water. Based on my experiments in diet changes, I have cut back greatly on wheat and cheese foods, and beer. So far, along with drinking more water, and exercising, I have noticed my problems going away. I think I'm having a gluten and dairy type of allergy... Just my take on handling this embarrassing situation.

Anal Leakage
Consumption of large amounts of unpasteurized apple cider and other 'natural' juices and beer with high yeast content will overwhelm the stable gut bacteria, causing anal leakage and possibly hemeroids. Cease and desist! Eat yogurt and take a multiple vitamin regularly!

I've heard about some treatment with rubber strings to get rid of the external haemorrhoids. You wrap the strings around them and they eventually fall off because blood circulation is cut off.

It seems the least painful and most effective.

Does anyone have any feedback for this procedure?

anal lealage
I had a similar problem and it turned out to be internal hemorrhoids that needed to be ligated. Not a painful procedure and worth the result 100%. I went to a colon and rectal specialist; the gastroenterologist was of no help whatsoever.
I hope this helps someone out there.

Similar problems and likewise desperate
I just found this forum and I am glad I found it. Like other, my gastroenterologist has been no help. I think I have her attention but she seems to be guessing at anal irritation being the culprit. I explain the symptoms and when it occurs (it's not after every BM) and she doesn't appear to be listening. She is great with the colonoscopy; but, I feel as if that is the area of specialization and she forgot about how to be a doctor. Sort of like to a carpenter every problem can be solved with a saw and a hammer.

I found I can clean after a BM by doing and small warm water enema or Fleet Natural. Unfortunately, that isn't practical when out or at work. I have recently experimented in desperation since there is no help from doctors. I thought what I have is fluid seeping from a bodily orifice. What can be used to block the leakage. That lead me to try inserting a tampon in the anus. I found that the tampon opens just inside the rectum and of course blocks fluid leakage (like closing the inner sphincter). I also found that if I leave it in for an hour or so it will absorb fluids to the point that when I remove it what is in the rectum is more solid and there is no leakage after that. I have now tried this several times and it works every time. Tampons inserted up the anus is a bizarre attempt to alleviate a symptom and it helps; however, something I would want not to discuss with my doctor and have her list in my medical records. That might get me speaking to a psychiatrist. I have told her about trying the Fleet Naturals and how they seem to help by removing remaining fecal matter so there can't be leakage and the anus won't leak again until the next BM.

An interesting observation of mine is that if the stool is very firm (to the point of being a bit difficult to pass), there is no leakage after the BM. If it is softer and particularly more pale in color there will always be leakage. I have experimented with anti-diarrhea medications in an attempt to make the stool harder. My next experiment is to try the probiotic approach.

anal leakage
I have had the "anal leakage" condition for a few years now. It finally got to the point where I know use "Tucks pads" inserted into the crack of my a$$ to keep the leakage from getting on my underwear. I used to have to literally "bleach the sh*t" out of my underwear. The tucks pads now stop that problem. In January I had a colonoscopy done & for a month after that I had no anal leakage & my bowl movements were more solid & not as "muddy" as they usually are. I think it might have happened because I had to drink all of the stuff to clean out before I had the colonoscopy but the leakage started back up after a month or so.

SOLUTION HERE
alright guys, this is a cool social guy speaking, who unfortunately had been dealing with this issue for a year or two I think. just like you guys,I have social life and this has bothered me too.

You name it, fiber, probiotics, yogurt, etc

I have searched the forums and consulted doctors and everything (just like you, yeah you, lol) and also tried my own solutions.

I have dealt with the smell of the mucus initially like showering more, and wiping but yeah, it's not a normal issue and I figured you needed to deal with the root cause.

I also tried pads, but this seems to have made another hole in the boat, so to speak, (the fact that there is something there and it may contribute to the issue).

My story goes like this.

I STRAINED one day and this #$@damn hemmorhoid appeared. The usual, painful. etc, usually it goes away. but that day, it was a painful BM. So I figured that one was the stretch of the century.

No biggie. Nothing serious, just a pea sized rascal.

No mucus, but I was being bothered by the odor, I was still at school then,

Then I finally I decided to have it removed by a surgeon. Everything was fine, I was worried a bit about prolapse, or my sphincter being loose, but this was not really a problem.

A year and a half later I think, Another one was born or pushed out due to straining. I figure fiber is really recommended to prevent this from happening.

Anyways, this new one is a real rascal. This made me furious/frustrated due to the redundancy of the MUCUS and the smell after a while and it doesn't go away.

FINALLY I FIGURED A REGULAR SOLUTION to remove the smell. However, I BELIEVE in DEALING WITH THE ROOT CAUSE so im getting it LIGATED.

I FIGURED THAT IT IS EITHER AN INTERNAL HEMMORHOID CAUSING THE MUCUS TO COME OUT, OR THE OPENING OF YOUR ANUS STILL HAS AN PROTRUDING TISSUE THAT DOESN'T SEAL THE ANUS PERFECTLY. -THAT IS IT.

AND JUST LIKE AN ARMPIT, YOU MOIST IT AND KEEP IT CLOSED AND WHAT HAPPENS? THAT IS JUST IT PEOPLE.

BELIEVE ME I have been DEALING WITH THIS RASCAL for a long time.

So the next step is to get my tissues "there" corrected in the safest way possible WITHOUT MAJOR surgery. Much like repairing an armpit down there. LOL

All right. In simple terms, you just have to get your anus SEALED Correctly just LIKE BEFORE ALL THIS.

THAT'S WHAT IM GOING TO TELL MY OPEN MINDED AND TRUSTWORTHY SURGEON. You need to communicate this CLEARLY TO YOUR Care giver/doctor/surgeon. capische?

In the meantime try my solution, put a small amount of petroleum jelly to protect the skin around your anal area and then apply scented or not ALUM POWDER. this may hurt if you have a scratch there or if you didn't apply the jelly. but this works for the whole day in helping you function for the day.

all right, use that until you have your tissues corrected. good luck guys, see you on the other side. cheers
