Re: Itchy rectum after bowel movment.

Just make sure you clean the area completely. Itchy is usually because there is still some stool left in the area.

That can be due to hemmroids. That on occassion will happen to me. The itch is real intense for a few minutes, then fades off.

Re: Itchy rectum after bowel movment.

I've found that for me the itching/burning isn't always after a BM. Dr, said its internal hemorrhoids, tho I've had no bleeding. i feel a slight discharge, but nothing is visible. Some times the irritation creeps on up my back side. I never had this before my colosotomy surgery and reversal. Could it be related? Loose or firm, frequent or not, it happens more often than not. I'd like to know why, but honestly after all the issues I had, I can accept it.

Re: Itchy rectum after bowel movment.

This sounds gross BUT there are parasites (worms) that you can have/get that causes itching. This is FAIRLY common especially in elementary school. There are a number of ways you could pick them up. If I remember correctly, this is diagnosed by taking stool specimens. Easily remedied with medication.
