wet anus

I have been suffering with grade 3 internal hemroids and also a anal skin tag for over 6 months, and some times a very embarring problem occurs after a bowel movement. Basically after i finish having a bowel movement the hemroid gets smaller and doesnt bother me. However sometimes the hemroid is swollen for long periods of time, which results in some sort of clear, sweat like substance inside my anus.

Im having trouble describing it, but basically i cant feel it seeping outside of me, and when i touch it i cant really see it, however it leaves a strong wet patch on my underwear and some times even soaks on to my trousers. There is only a wet patch on my underwear when i am either sitting down or lying down, standing up i seem to be ok.

Is this a side affect of having inflamed internal hemroids or is something else the cause? I have seen a colorectal surgeoun a few months ago and he couldnt see anything wrong with my rectum.

This happens probably once every month or two. My stools are normal.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: wet anus


Im starting to think that it may have something to do with my skin tag, as it seems like the "wetness" is more coming around the skin tag, which gets enlarged and hard as well.

If anyone could help or offer some suggestions that would be great

Re: wet anus

Perhaps the prolasping internal hemroid is the cause of this "wetness", as these websites suggest:

As the anal cushion of an internal hemorrhoid continues to enlarge, it bulges into the anal canal. It may even pull down a portion of the lining of the rectum above, lose its normal anchoring, and protrude from the anus. This condition is referred to as a prolapsing internal hemorrhoid. In the anal canal, the hemorrhoid is exposed to the trauma of passing stool, particularly hard stools associated with constipation. The trauma can cause bleeding and sometimes pain when stool passes. The rectal lining that has been pulled down secretes mucus and moistens the anus and the surrounding skin. Stool also can leak onto the anal skin. The presence of stool and constant moisture can lead to anal itchiness (pruritus ani), though itchiness is not a common symptom of hemorrhoids. The prolapsing hemorrhoid usually returns into the anal canal or rectum on its own or can be pushed back inside with a finger, but it prolapses again with the next bowel movement.

Most symptoms arise from enlarged internal hemorrhoids. Abnormal swelling of the anal cushions causes dilatation and engorgement of the arteriovenous plexuses. This leads to stretching of the suspensory muscles and eventual prolapse of rectal tissue through the anal canal. The engorged anal mucosa is easily traumatized, leading to rectal bleeding that is typically bright red due to high blood oxygen content within the arteriovenous anastomoses. Prolapse leads to soiling and mucus discharge (triggering pruritus) and predisposes to incarceration and strangulation.

Any one else have something similiar to this?
