Hi leaky butt,
(You need to consult with a doctor)
Meanwhile - itchy butt needs a break from dry toilet paper. Here are several methods I use to keep it clean without scrubbing it raw.
Try using adult wet-wipes (cottonelle or generic brand). They are flushable. Use the wet wipe first, then pat-dry with toilet paper - no wiping.
If you have a bulb syringe - use warm water to rinse off any residue after every poop or passing whatever. Then, pat dry with a clean cotton wash-cloth - I bought them by the dozen for various hygiene uses.
After cleaning any residue - try applying a barrier ointment, like A&D for diaper rash. Preparation H cream/ointment also may help (external use only).
Something else - unconventional - that helps prevent excoriation, and part of my hygiene strategy: Aloe vera gel. It is sold for skin care after-sun & sun-burns. At the end of summer I bought a couple of large bottles with pump dispensers. As an alternative to commercial wet-wipes - apply a squirt on folded toilet tissue and gently clean around the anus. With another folded tissue - gently wipe dry.
Call to schedule yourself an appointment with a doctor, PCP or Gastroenterologist. The latter may be a wait for a new patient appt. And S/he may want a referral from a PCP. So - get on the phone tomorrow morning. We all had to do it. The first visit may be a emotionally sensitive for you - butt - with the proper diagnosis and treatment - you'll be glad you're able to manage your symptoms.
Ciao, Denny Rae
