Monitor closely: I would recommend that you advise your primary physician of the situation. Since the tissue is pink it may represent a small amount of blood on the paper.

I've been told that people need 3-5 wipes. After pooping I often have to wipe 20+ times. Is something wrong with me or are others just unclean?

I've been told that people need 3-5 wipes. After pooping I often have to wipe 20+ times. Is something wrong with me or are others just unclean?

Combination issue: Please ignore the 3 wipe story you heard. Everyone is different. Do what is needed to be clean. If the wiping is usually excessive, like the 20+ times, maybe you are being excessive in trying to be clean beyond what taking a shower and washing there would do. We can obsess about anything in response to stress. Don't irritate the tissue by wiping too much. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Your: Your child probably has fecal retention syndrome. He is essesntially holding his poop. The best treament for this is a laxative called miralax (polyethylene glycol). He should take about 1/2 to 1 capful per day for up to six to nine months. It is important for him and his poop to part as friends for a long time. The reason his stool is in his underwear is not that he is not wiping well is that he is having breakthrough or fecal soiling from the liquid poop going around the hard, large stool in his colon. If the symptoms continue you should see your local doctor. ...Read more
