A few months ago I had a few occasions of itching sensations by the opening of my rectum. I did not think much of it. A couple of weeks ago I had a hard bowel movement which led to blood afterwards on the tissues during clean up. Ever since then, every time that I have a bowel movement it feels like the bowel movement is breaking through possibly healing skin, I have a little pain and blood shows up on my tissues. Is there anything I can do to get this to heal quickly? I have never had this happen before. The pain is also at the same place that I had the itching a few months ago

  • Go to the doctor and show him/her where you are having pain. You probably will get a strong antibiotic cream.Then just eat alot of fiber, and keep the area clean, also don't itch it or wipe yourself hard. Change your underware twice or more a day.Use adult bathroom wipes like cottonell.Wash yourself with a mild bar soap like dove. It will heal, but might take a few weeks.

  • this has happened to me a couple times... usually I just wait it out, but you can try eating softer foods - applesauce, soup, etc, so when you have bowel movements they are less "solid" - gross, I know, but the easier it goes down the easier it comes out. Also for some reason sleeping on your stomach helps, probably because it relieves pressure from that area.

  • You may want to also increase your water intake. As we move to warmer months the body has a tendecy to dry out and the anal region starts to feel the effect first. So, try to drink more fluid (ie water, gatorade or the like) and cut back on caffeine products (coffee/soda) and this will also help improve the healing process.
