Had diarrhea for 3-4 days, now anus burns on peeing.

Resolved Question:

Hi i am a 14 year old male. I have had diahrea (sorry for my spelling) for about 3-4 days with an upset stomach. Then it stopped for about a day, and when i try to go to the bathroom today, my anus feels like its burning and it hurts ALOT and barely anything has come out. I just took metamucil. Do you know what is happening, or what should i do?

From your symptoms of burning anus,

You had infection, therefore had diarrhea with upset stomach. After you had continuous diarrhea, obviously the pressure created during passage of loose stools and flatulence has clearly damaged the lining of rectum and anal canal. During diarrhea apart from undigested food, even the acidic secretions such as gastrin get expelled, when it reaches the rectum further damages the mucosal lining.

What you are facing rite now could be infection of anal region or just after effects of chronic diarrhea. I suggest you wait for 3 to 4 days, if it’s not infection it will disappear by itself. If it doesn’t disappear in 4 days, it could be infection. I suggest you visit a physician to further examine the anal area.

Thank you.
