Help! I have burning sensation in the anus?

Burning: Burning sensation around the anal canal can be from a multitude of issues. One of the most common is an anal fissure or crack in the anal skin and is usually benign. If you are concerned I would recommend your doctor do a thorough rectal exam to make the diagnosis.

Liquid base: When you have diarheea, mostly liquid, anything you ate disolves really well in water. That solution penetrates the tissues pretty fast. The anal canal has sensitive inervation, and at this level you feel the discomfort sensation.

What is the Stinging/burning sensation around outside of my anus?

Anal discomfort: Possibilities include an anal fissure, perianal dermatitis, and hemorrhoids. A perianal abscess is less likely. I recommend that you consult a proctologist or colorectal surgeon for diagnosis, advice and treatment. In the meantime try warm applications and apply an ointment like anusol or cortisporin.

Possible anal fissur: It sounds like you may have an anal fissure. This is a tear of the mucosa in the anal canal. It typically causes pain during the passage of stool and possibly some afterward. Have you had an exam to chack the anal area? Drink Plenty of fluids and take in a high fiber diet. See your doctor to have this checked.

Focal anal pain: Could you be referring to fissures, fistula, abscess? Sexually transmitted disease (syphilis, gc, hiv, etc.) should be considered. Hemorrhoids & rectal prolapse can appear as a painful swelling. Anal trauma of any kind may cause mechanical injury. Skin eruptions need to be considered. But if fissure is confirmed, topical Nitroglycerin is traditionally used, although other agents can be compounded.

Vulvodynia: May be. Due to dysfunctional contractions/spasm/ neuropathy. discuss PT exercises or biofeedback. Also check for yeast infection which seems to be associated with vulvodynia, and is assocaited with Gi disturbance.. http://www. Nichd. Nih.

This is not an: Uncommon malady. A vicious cycle can occur when that delicate tissue becomes irritated and inflamed causing more vigorous attempts at hygiene with every BM. This, in turn, causes more inflammation/irritation, etc, etc...Gently clean with an over the counter steroid after BM's, and otherwise try to leave the area alone. No washing with soap, etc.
