Leakage post bm - irritation

Postby Fissurefrustration » 21 Oct 2015, 17:09

Hi all.

I've been using my gtn for 3 weeks now after my scar tissue removal surgery. Pain is generally not terrible but I noticed after a bm no matter how well I clean with baby wipes and shower it down a few hours later the whole sphincter starts to burn. I wanted to investigate why. It felt moist when I was walking so I dabbed the area with normal loo paper and there was stool with sweat on the paper. Can faecal matter cause bad irritation on the sphincter? I've never had this issue before and I'd love to know how to stop it.

Suffering since June 2013

Methods tried:
GTN cream - migraines!
Manuka Honey / Coconut oil / Aloe
tag excision X 2, botox x 3
dilatation 2 X daily + Retin-C Vitamin Scar Treatment Oil 2 X daily - best thing ever.
Now pain free 2/7/21

I get irritation if all the stool is not gone after a BM, and for me it itches and feels uncomfortable, and sometimes stings. I don't use wipes, though, ever, preferring to use wet sterile gauze pads (expensive but rewarding...so to speak :scratch: ). I also never use soap, though I am on and off my Sitz Bath quite a few times during the day. My bum never let's me forget it's there... always some irritation and have just had to accept this. Will never be what it was before this happened to me. I am also thinking of doing dilation a bit again, as I think things are a little 'tight' but just very very gently, and maybe just once a week.
