Bum Sore After Pooping
Intestinal issues: This depends on how long, and whether there is blood in the stool. If it's a short term issue, and everything else is normal, then it may just be a stomach virus, causing mild irritation. However, if there is blood, or it's a prolonged issue, then you should consult your doc immediately for evaluation and discussion. ...Read more
Diet/irritation: If your child is otherwise healthy and doing well in growth and development, I would imagine this episode is isolated to diet and contact irritation of the anal area. Stool (poo) has waste products that can irritate and digest the sensitive skin areas of your child's bum. Rinsing with water after and "pat" dry can help (or sitz bath). Antibacterial ointment or vaseline can relieve irritation. ...Read more
I have Watery poo 4 times in 1 hour. I had testical pain a few hours ago. I didn't eat in 9 hours. My bum is getting sore from wiping it. What is wrong?
Intestinal infection: Most of the time when people get diarrhea something is in your intestines that your body is trying to clear out. Drink clear liquids only for 24-36 hours so you stay hydrated and don't burden your digestive tract with food. If diarrhea lessens then advance with a Banana, rice, applesauce, toast diet x 1 day. Avoid milk/dairy for about a week. If it persists with diarrhea see a doctor.. ...Read more
My 16month old is teething and tonight he had a dark green/black poo! Normal or? His bum was very sore and skin slightly broken!
Not related: Stool color usually due to what he's eating. If it's green going in, it's often green coming out. Black stop can indicate bleeding, so call your pediatrician to see if they want to see him. As to the teething at 16 months, it's a pain but it's transient. If he's 16 months old and has not as yet seen a pediatric dental specialist he's 4 months overdue. ...Read more

Small skin cuts: You likely have caused small nicks in your skin when you shaved. Consider a higher quality shaver and shaving cream. For now, try to wash the area with soap and water twice a day, dry, and use a "baby" powder to keep your skin dry during the day and night. Also consider applying warm compresses for pain relief. See a doctor immediately if you are a diabetic or if it does not improve in 2 days ...Read more

I was water skiing and I fell and water was forcibly shot up my anus which was very painful. I now have running poop and is sore. Is this okay?
Depends. . .: Sounds like infectious diarrhea if you have runny poop after (presumably) dirty water forced into you. I'm more concerned about trauma from incident. If soreness or pain gets worse or doesn't resolve in a day or two, need to get evaluated. If any fever or blood stool, also need to get evaluated. Heck, just to be on safe side, go see your doc. Too many variables to give much more advice online. ...Read more

I just finished a cleanse a week ago, now I have a cold with sore throat body's aches but I'm most concerned that I am pooping only mucus?
Cleanse: I am not sure the type of cleanse you did but they can release toxins that can make you feel ill and could effect your bowel movements. I would be a good idea to get evaluated to make sure there is nothing more serious wrong. Some cleanses release the toxins but do not help you metabolize or get rid of them so that would be important information to find out. ...Read more

This hole leads to the leakage of urine in the rectum and feces traveling into the bladder. Or maybe you just have a bad UTI. ...Read more
