Anal burning

Posted by Lynn E. on July 19, 2001 at 13:33:37:

I do not have any fissures/hemorrhoids (been checked by a colorectal surgeon already). My problem is that after bowel movements, my anal skin burns. I can clean with wet tissue and it still burns. Once in a while there is some itch but not often. I can feel the burn as the BM is coming out and then it lasts for hours after in most cases.

Any ideas? Yeast maybe?

I also notice it more after using a psyillium husk product (to clease the colon). It is not always related to this however.

Thanks all

I believe this may be related to parasites, bcaterial overgrowth, toxic bowel. Pysllium carries out a lot of microbial waste so the fact that your symptoms get worse here tells me something.

Get checked for candida, parasites. This condition is also known as dysbiosis. hope this helps

Does if happen after you eat hot or spicy foods? That may be a cause.

Helping You,

Thanks---I had suspected parasites as well. I will do a parasite cleanse and candida cleanse. I was given Lamisil 200 mg tablets but after two weeks of taking them I got scared of what they may be doing to my liver.

I am going to try Yeast Fighters next. I read that a parasite cleanse is first, then the yeast, then the liver.

Over the course of 2 years I took 23 antibiotics for what
the doctors thought was bronchitis/sinusitis. It in fact was not. I have mild asthma and sarcoidosis. Both are asymptomatic right now and I would like to keep it that way.
This all started with a bad reaction to Sulfa meds for a UTI--then came the coughing/short of breath then antibiotics then diagnosis. The antibiotics have wrecked havoc on me.
I have anal burning/vaginal burning/burning eyes and my skin itches all the time. My muscles are fatigued.

Biofeedback for stress has done wonders but I have to "clean up" the little leftovers. The burning is NOTHING like it was but still is enough to remind me that something isn't right. Of coures the doctors won't help---they say I am "anxious". I told my MD--he caused all this with the overuse of antibiotics rather than research and he should help fix it. He disagrees. I myself am at fault for not questioning all the prescriptions and why I was getting worse and not better.

Live and learn,
Thanks!!
Lynn

Well, after hearing that, dysbiosis is what you are most likely dealing with. your gut ecology is altered and needs to be restored.

One possible help to you would be a soil-organisms product called Primal Defense. It is not a probiotic but a group of transient organisms (just passing through the intestines but perform important jobs) that exhibit potent effects against a whole range of parasites, fungi and bacteria. They help return the enviornment of your colon to a slightly more acidic condition. Then, parasites just can't live there and your good flora will start to come back. When the bugs are gone, start taking a product called Flora Source along with your Primal Defense. This will finish the job and return your flora to normal. If you have any questions just ask

primal defense is a name I have seen before---I'll go check out prices on the net.

Ok--I do have a question----
Would using the Primal Defense then FloraSource be in place of a parasite and candida cleanse or is this after I have done the candida/parasite cleansing?

Thanks again--you are always a great source of info!

Dear Lynn,

I have had fissures, fistulas,interior/exterior hemmoroids, cysts,polyps removed...9 surgury's in 10 years..I am 35.
What I suspect from your use of psyillim husk..maybe causing some of your problems. My father used PH consistantly and was told from a doctor that over use can cause much more harm than good. It actually causes sediment - like cement in your bowel walls. It can deposit and cause narrowing to your bowels. I know this is true, because sometimes he would not rinse out his glass and it would literally turn to concrete..while I was with him at home I did and have thrown away many glasses because you simply could not remove the PH from the glass. This is something for you to think about.
What I would also recomend to you is this...Kegal exercises..possibly your rectum has lost some of it's muscle control..and that is why you are suffering leakage..or it could be because of I.B.S. Irritable Bowel Syndrome...More great ideas proven to help the rectum..I have done this-been there-done it all.

#1. Purchase a childs step stool..like the little tikes one about a foot high..for kids to reach the sink - to brush their teeth. No Joke. Put your feet on this stool while you sit on the commode. This takes all muscle strain off of your rectum. Your hips and knees should at a even height. This is for repair and recovery.
#2. Purchase a Squeeze Bottle...the ones that have a pull up top. Fill it with tepid water and shoot it against your perianal area after using the commode..every time..not just for bm's.
#3. Purchase TUCKS Pads they are a miracle to say the least. They are about 3X3 circles - witch hazel, alcohol and water..take two pads and put them in between your buttocks while in bed for the night. Cooling, soothing and healing. Some no-name brands are available as well..and they work just as well.
#4. After showering/bathing...take a hair dryer on low heat and use it on your butt..you may have to bend over..but the heat is beneficial to healing. It will remove any moisture trapped in the rectal area. It does not dry the skin..only removes trapped moisture from bathing.
#5. Pay attention to your bowel movements..If you have to create a journel...so if anything serious happens..you have recordings. I woke up one morning..this was after 5 surguries..and I just was not right. Could not put a finger on anything..was not experiencing any pain nor discomfort..no fever...nothing. I just felt like something was TERRIBLY wrong. Sometimes when you experience the same pain..it becomes a ignorant task to feel it..because the pain becomes normal. I went to use the bathroom to urinate and when I wiped..I found that my rectum had prolasped out of my body. Talk about FREAK. I was in Surgury the next day. No symptoms..nothing. So I will say this..keep everything on paper...continue to be very aware of your body and try some of the things I have told you.
Above all - NEVER EVER RESIST A SECOND OPINION!

My first doctor was a quack..2nd Saved my life..just a week in between...really.

Dos.

The primal defense is often used as a post-parasite cleanse. It has direct action on parasites. It also handles what the parasite killers didn't. I often advise taking Primal defense for 1-3 months before going on probiotics like Flora Source. Flora Source is for STRICTLY after parasites and bugs have been cleared. Parasites and bad bugs feed on probiotics when they are outnumbered.

Hi, Lynn.

Many of the posted ideas are valid. However LGS, alone, is enough to cause your symptoms. Poorly digested fatty acids are VERY corrosive to the anal mucosa. LGS, then, progresses to all of the things everyone else has said.

For Lynn E re Sarcoidosis

Do you know what caused your Sarcoidosis? Do you think it has anything to do with Leaky Gut Syndrome? I have a friend who has it, she doesn't know how she got it but lately it's been a little better. Her doctor is thinking of testing her for LGS because she showed him an article about it that I found on the internet that briefly discussed a link between the two illnesses. Do you have any information that may help her?

No, I really haven't found anything that can used as a cause for Sarcoidosis. A great specialist in Los Angeles believes it is a hyper allergic reaction to environmental allergin or virus.

Sarcodosis, according to him (Dr. Om P. Sharma) is NOT autoimmune dispite what all the doctors say. He said it autoimmune like in nature but does not have the autoimmune qualities.

Now--if this is a hyper allergic reaction--perhaps it is yeast that could set it off. I am the ONE AND ONLY person in my family for generations to have this disease. I got it right after a reaction to sulfa medication for a bladder infection. Also I was using Diet Pepsi in huge quantities daily. Aspertame forms formaldahyde (spelled wrong no doubt) and there have been a large group of people who work in dry cleaning, nursing, firemen, military and printing shops that have sarcoidosis. A whole company had a large amount of sarcoidosis found in the workers---they made flourescent lights. One women swears formaldahyde caused hers. Now---I have one person I know that is bad off with sarcoidosis--he continues to drink diet soda all day long. I asked him to quit and see if he gets better but he is "hoooked". Go figure---I would surely do something/anything to find out what has caused this.

Another woman I know with it is very bad off--lives at the end of a military runway!!! She won't move!! I don't get these people. Chemicals raining down or being poured into their bodies and they wonder why they are getting worse and not better. I avoid aspertame AT ALL COSTS!

Anyway, after the sulfa meds I got horrible vaginal yeast. Things just went downhill from there. I had taken them before with no problem but the last 2 doses I took made a my skin itch horribly, my windpipe fill with mucus etc. The doctor said--"that's not an allergy, just keep taking them and you will get over it". Dumb me--I DID! I then was diagnosed with asthma because I began to cough day and night and be short of breath.

My cough is gone and I feel fine but I am left with yeast and am trying hard to deal with it. I have vaginal burning/anal burning/eyes burning and what they say is cervicitis. I am hoping that my chest xrays will clear up as well if I work on the yeast. Helping You has given me great info to get started. 3 months of rotation antifungals/3 months of Primal Defense and then Probiotics.
Even though my cough is gone my chest xrays are not clear.


A good place to go for info on sarcoidosis is
http://www.worldsarcsociety.com they have message boards and chats and even a doctor that you can contact.

Good luck---
Lynn

Hi, LynnE.

I think all would agree that sarcoidosis is an autoimmune condition. See the archives about what that means.
