When I empty my bowels, I strain. I've always done it and it caused my anal fissures, itching, and pain. How do I stop straining so my anus can heal?

When I empty my bowels, I strain. I've always done it and it caused my anal fissures, itching, and pain. How do I stop straining so my anus can heal?

Stool softeners: The straining irritates the anal tissue - the stool is probably a bit too firm. So you need to take something to make it a bit softer. If one of these work - then a little daily is better than intermittent use. And yes, daily use is ok. Mom, glycolax, stool softeners, and even prunes are ok. Dulcolax and senna herbal agents are not - they cause the colon to become addicted to their regular use. ...Read more

Hi. I have dry, itchy, scalpy, flaky, cracking skin around my anus and on buttlocks. It itches very bad. How can I treat that?

It sound to me: By the areas involved that you may have PSORIASIS!

My suggestion is that you start by seeing a Board Certified Dermatologist...there are many TREATMENTS if that is the diagnosis.

Over the counter steroid (cortisone) is a FIRST AID you can try....but check with your PCP for any other treatment if you cannot see a Dermatology specialist soon!
Hope this helps!

I have alot of anal sex. Should my butthole be leaky and saggy? It also itches when ny man relieves hiself in me, is that normal?

It could be leaky: And saggy due to frequent stretching by the penis. IIt stretches the muscle and causes the tightness of the sphincter to loosen. I would try things other than continued anal sex, as you will damage the muscle further. You are itchy afterwards because semen contains substances that make the tissue itch.. ...Read more
