Can you describe your symptoms please ?

Its possible to get a cut there but no or minimal blood on tissue paper while wiping it after passing stool . It usually causes pain on defecating.

Managed with pain relief like tylenol, ibuorofen .

Lignoacaine topical application numbs the pain too.

Good anal hygiene is essential preferably with Sitz bath ( you will need to see it on Youtube for doing it).

Avoid constipation by using stool softeners like miralax, psylium etc.

It usually heals on its on with these measures in a couple of weeks time.

Let me know if you have any further queries

Is there a reason for so much diarrhea?
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

For how long have you been having this? How many times a day?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Well it’s usually only once or twice a day, but it is a diarrhea like or small stool thing.
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

For how long?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It’s off and on. Sometimes the stools are solid, but sometimes they are diarrhea like.
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Ok it could be Irritable bowel syndrome. Do you get gas or bloating too ?

Cramps?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Sometimes.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Not really cramps.
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Ok you need to manage the diarrhea with imodium and get a stool microscopy test done to look for any chronic infection . It seems more like IBS but one has to rule out other causes to label that which needs few tests. But sometimes its better to take appropriate treatment rather then too many investigations ,if it isnt too bothering.

Factors like stress and food allergies do play a part.

I get a stool microscopy at the doctors office?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I have been under a lot of stress too. Do you think that could affect the stools too?
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Yes definitely it does affect your bowel movements. Yes you can ask your doctor for that.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Does alcohol affect the stools too? I drink maybe once a week, but sometimes I drink a few too many. Cam that affect the stools too?
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Yes longterm alcohol use can lead to altered bowel habits. These are triggers or risk factors for bowel disturbance

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Omg.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Should I not drink anymore? Can it have lasting effects?
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Yes it can have. You need to be moderate in alcohol consumption

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Well I don’t drink that much anymore, but when I was in my 20’s I drank a lot. If I don’t drink anymore will the problems go away or will they always be present.
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

These will settle now if you quit . Longterm alcohol consumption is a risk factor for many diseases so you need to be careful. Your bowels will improve too.

I hope it answered your query.
