Rectum Issue
An_244888 posted:
I hope this is in the right place. I am a male, mid 20's who has had a problem now for about a year. Whenever I use the bathroom (#2), when I wipe, there will be a little bit of blood on the paper. Once I am all done, my anus will usually burn for a little bit, and then turn into an itch. Most times, after an hour or so, the itch will intensify, and I can also tell that it is like my anus is leaking a little bit, and I will have to wipe several times. This usually continues for a couple hours, but the itching persists all day. The itching, and the leaking are very uncomfortable, and limit what I can do sometimes. It's hard to walk for an extended period of time, or play any sports without having to stop to go wipe. What could this be or what should I do? Thanks.

Well, this is the WebMD Mens Health Community, but it is against the rules here as well as impossible to diagnose or offer any medical advice. You really need to see a doctor for this. Start with your primary doctor and see if he/she feels you need to see a specialist such as a proctologist or gastroentrologist.

Rectal bleeding and problems should not be ignored. It would be a good idea to see your doctor asap for evaluation and treatment of these symptoms.

I had some of the same symptons for over 40 years ()lots of itching but little blood). Went to a dermotologist who prescribed clobetasol propinate ointment 0.05%. Cleared up. Can't recall what she diagnosed it as, but when I see her again, I will try to find out for you.
