For the past three weeks, Have experienced constant moisture in the rectal area. Almost like after I goto the bathroom, I cannot get the rest of the fecal matter out. Then for the rest of the day, it lke seeps out and creates constant moisture. Constantly annoying and itchy. Anyone else explain...

Hello,,  Yes I have had that to..  It really is terrible..  My gastro said sometimes it is from eating to much sugar..  Just keep some little wipes with you...  That helps me...

I agree with ryleigh... keeping a small pack (travel size) of baby wipes with you is a good idea. I try to make it a habit everytime I use the restroom whether or not I have had a BM or not since you are bound to have any type of leakage or residue anyways with gas as well. I know it sounds horrible but its just a fact of life. I just make it a part of my hygiene routine and I take it with me to the restroom without thinking about it now.

Do you all remember when Olean/Olestra came out? I kept hearing about anal leakage caused be eating too much of that. Could there be a connection... do you eat too much of this non-fat ingredient?

*Disclaimer: I have not researched this, nor do I know anything about it. I'm only going by memory of what was said about this product when it was introduced many years ago.

I remember that. That was with those potato chips right? Darn I forgot the name. I never ate those chips because I didn't like them anyway.

I don't know if anything I eat has Olean/Olestra in it. I don't look at that part of the label. I guess I need to start paying more attention to what I'm ingesting.

Thanks :)

A quick Google on Olean lead me to this:
 
Des, it is the WOW chips.

Here's a quick reference from the site about the anal leakage:

Q. How is it possible to get people to buy a product best known for its capacity to induce "anal leakage" anyway?

A. Frankly, we don't appreciate your tone. Anal leakage is no laughing matter. We are committed to fighting the scourge of anal leakage and the heartbreak it causes. In fact, at Procter & Gamble's underground labs, scientists are currently working day and night to produce an improved version of Olean that may -- now we're not promising anything here -- but just may provide the same healthful benefits of Olean with 15% less anal leakage! Truly, yet more proof that this a great time to be alive.

I don't recall ever having had a problem with the WOW potato chips, although I didn't like the greasy film they left in my mouth and so have avoided them for that reason.  I seem to recall I tried them again a few years back and didn't get that same greasy aftertaste, but for whatever reason, I just kept using the regular chips all the same.
 
There's a new prescription diet drug out right now that's supposed to be really horrible about causing you to mess yourself.  Someone jokingly pointed out that it only caused you to lose weight because you got too scared to eat.  I don't know if that's 100% of its ability to work, but there are certainly a lot of people on here, me included, who can attest to the fear of eating being a source of weight loss. 
 
The other things to be on the lookout for are sugar alcohols.  They give everyone gas and D if you eat more than a few pieces of sugar-free candy; I could certainly see how they could cause D bad enough that it caused leakage. 
 
GCutter, you mention itching.  That sounds a lot like a hemmroid.  I wonder if you have an inflammed hemmie that might be keeping your anus from closing up all the way properly?  I don't know enough about hemmroids to know if that's possible, but I know when I get itching down there, that's the cause of it.  You should probably have a GI check out out down there and see if that's the case.  If you can't get in or can't afford to see one, you might try some hemmroid suppositories and see if that helps the itching and/or the leakage.  If the itching goes away, then that was probably the cause.

I post on crohns and get this too... I cant make it go away but I swear I have it worse in certain pants which makes me think it may be sweat related too, or that I need better air flow around there. I use babywipes, hydrocortisone cream, and sometimes baby powder. The trifector seems to make the feeling go away.

I too have this problem, I'm on Canasa suppositories, not really helping.  Some days seems worse than others.  I would love to get some other opinions on what is working for other people.  As far as the sugar thing goes - I avoided all sugar for a week and it didn't help at all.
