What causes anal leakage in men? How do you treat it?

What causes anal leakage in men? How do you treat it?

Need CR doctor: This is unusual in men. Often related to diet: high in fat, low in fiber, often drink beer and/or lots of caffeine. You need a diagnostic exam first to be sure there isn't a muscle or nerve issue. If you've had a back injury or surgery, that may be related. Obesity, diabetes make this worse as well.

What is a anal leakage and what causes anal leakage. Can you cure a anal leakage without surgery?

Feces leaking out: The involuntary loss of fecal material from the anus results in brown staining or feces on your underwear. Most often it is caused by some damage to the anal sphincter (the "elastic band" that opens and closes when you have a bowel movement) by prior surgery, anal receptive sex, or nerve damage. Also, severe diarrhea or impaction (hard stool stuck inside) can cause this. See your doctor!

Can fungus cause anal clear itchy discharge?

Can fungus cause anal clear itchy discharge?

Yeast seems unlikely: This may be possible, but I doubt yeast is the most likely explanation. Some other infection or inflammatory bowel disease may be more likely. If you are the receptive partner in anal sex, and if at risk for STDs, gonorrhea or chlamydia are possible, or possibly herpes but less likely without substantial pain. Rectal cancer could do it. The main thing is to see a doctor and take it from there.

I'm hiv+ and was wondering can my medicine cause anal discharge?

Not usually: It is important to note the meds do not usually. If you are having anal intercourse, it is more likely infection that is causing this. You need to see your doctor for the HIV meds and find out what is the doctor's suggestion. If no specific answer, then need to see GI doctor. Best wishes.

Can fecal body odor be caused by an anal fissure? I figure I have one because of a yellowish discharge an the pain I had after a bm 1 month ago.

Usually not: Anal fissures can cause a keyhold deformity, however these usually occur with chronicity and long term wounds. I would not expect to see one if you have only had symptoms for a month. Consider seeing a doctor for further evaluation of both.
