Burning sensation needed to be diagonized


Date: 17 Dec 2012   Posted By: Binu Joseph     Group: Doctors    Category: Surgery   

I am a 47-year-old male having anal burning especially during toilet experience or other items often. Sometimes, I feel that something is present there, even though there is nothing. The burning sensation is acute, when I consume food items containing chilly ie non-vegetarian food stuff. As this would happen often, I would like to get an expert opinion from a surgeon.

Are you having a burning sensation in your anus especially in the lavatory or urinal? Learn more about treatments of anal burning, remedies and precautions.

You have to find out what is the main cause of your annul burning.

There could be a number of reasons for burning sensation while passing urine. You need to go through a few tests in a clinic to know about the real reason of this problem. I am not a surgeon but can suggest you some remedial measures that you could take to get rid of this burning sensation.

Probable reasons behind burning sensation while passing urine:
  1. Constipation:
    Constipation may seem a very common problem but its side effects are very unpleasant to go through; which may include burning sensation while passing stool and urine and in severe cases bleeding of the anal canal.

  2. Gastroenteritis:
    Gastroenteritis is inflammation and irritation of gastro-intestinal track caused by parasites and bacteria.

  3. Piles:
    Piles is the inflammation of hemorrhoids which are clumps, cluster, masses, and cushions of tissue in the anal track. When these hemorrhoids are inflamed, a very unpleasant burning sensation occurs while passing stool and urine.

  4. Infection:
    Bacterial, fungal, parasitic and other microbial infections in intestine also results in burning sensation.

  5. Fissure:
    Fissure or tear in the lining of anal canal also results in burning sensation and even bleeding.

My suggestions:

  1. You could be suffering from severe anal track infection; so without wasting time refer a physician and start undergoing antibiotic treatment after proper diagnosis.

  2. without wasting time, start consuming 'Papaya' on daily basis. This will remove constipation problem and also soothe down your elementary canal.

  3. Induce a lot of liquid food in your diet like 'lassi' and juices.

  4. For breakfast eat Oats, 'Dahliya', 'Khichari' and sprouted moong dal or fruit/veggies Salad.

  5. Drink a lot of water to wash away the infection.

  6. Stop consuming tea/coffee for a while.

  7. Stop eating chilli and spicy hot food. This may also include non-veg and restaurant cooked food.

  8. Eat simple home cooked healthy food. This may include a lot of fibrous food.

  9. Keep your anal track cool, dry and hygienically clean.

  10. Apply coconut oil in the areas of burning sensation.

Burning sensation in the anus is caused due to the irritation or inflammation of the anal mucosa. Consult a Gastroenterologist initially to diagnose your condition.

Causes for Burning sensation in Anus
1) Constipation: Frequent, long term and untreated constipation.
2) Anal Fissures: Cracks in the external orifice of the Anus.
3) Anorectal Polyps: Growth or protrusion in the proximity of the internal/external orifice.
4) Bleeding Hemorrhoids: Bleeding per rectum.
5) Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS): Irritation of the intestinal mucosa due to wrong eating habits or stress and other related disorders.
6) Gastroenteritis: Inflammation of the gastric mucosa due to infections by microbes or parasites.
7) Infections: Secondary infection of the fissure by Bacteria, Fungi or other microbes.

Treatment and remedies for Burning sensation in Anus.

  • Cut down alcohol and caffeinated foods, instead go for consuming Herbal teas.

  • Drink at least 2-3 litres of water per day.

  • Drink 2-3 glasses of Fresh fruit juices. Juices like pineapple, papaya help treat constipation.

  • Exercise regularly.

  • Take a break from your work seat every one hour. You can use a seat cover or a towel made out of cotton to cover your seat in the work place and in your car. Long hours of sitting on foam seats increases body heat and causes dryness of stools.
