Recently, I have had a skin irritation around my anal area. It is not itchy, but is painful. The closest condition I have to relate this to is diaper rash. I do not touch it or scratch it, but it gets worse when I walk or sit often. I looked at it today and noticed some parts are starting to get red and irritated. Again, it does not itch and isnt always painful except when I am walking a lot or sitting and standing often. Also, frequent bathroom trips can also irritate it. The only theory I have is irritation from sweating. I have looked up this on the internet and was very unsuccessful. Please help with any information of what it could be or any good over the counter medications and or home remedies. Thank you
I have had this issue for many .... many years. After a lot of discomfort while trying to figure this problem out, I discovered I am sort of ... allergic to my own feces. In addition, if there is a drop of semen left on me after sex with my husband, it's like a drop of acid on my skin, burns, blisters, it's horrible. Using a lot of TP trying to keep clean after a bowel movement would cause bleeding. I finally found my answer with a bidet toilet seat. It is necessary for me to be completely clean after each bowel movement or sex. If I'm not at home I keep a refillable mustard or catsup container with me. There are also portable bidets you can purchase. Hope this helps someone out there, I know I was so miserable for a very long time.
