When it comes to your underwear zone, your vagina usually get all the attention. But you need to take care of your other private part, too. That's right, we're talking about your butthole. There's no reason to be squeamish or embarrassed—as Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry says, they're like opinions: everybody has one. So we asked top experts all the nitty-gritty details about how to keep your bum healthy.
We can all agree that scratchy industrial TP gets a hard pass, but otherwise, clean your backside with whatever floats your boat—use toilet paper, wipes, or go European with a bidet. But skip colored or scented TP or wipes, which can irritate the delicate skin in the anal area, says Lisa Ganjhu, D. Whatever you use, be gentle to avoid irritation, and thorough—doing a half-assed job sorry, we couldn't resist and leaving stool behind can also irritate. Aside from cleaning after a bowel movement, remember to clean the area in the shower with a gentle soap and pat dry afterwards, says Jennifer Inra, M.
Ganjhu gives this practice a hard pass. You could do a lot of damage. Or have an unpleasant side effect like some of these women who've had their girls with dirty butts bleached. When your rectum—like any other part of your body—is irritated, your body secretes fluid to help it heal.
It can feel like fecal incontinence leaking poopsays Ganjhu. Her advice: "Leave things be as natural as possible. What you should—and shouldn't—be doing to keep your lady parts in good shape:. They don't call it a ring of fire for nothing. Frequent going—and wiping—can leave your bum raw and sore, especially if you've eaten acidic, spicy, or greasy foods, says Inra. Until it feels better, show it some extra love. Air dry afterward, or gently towel dry.
You can also smear on a thin layer of a barrier or diaper rash cream that contains zinc oxide, which may be necessary to protect the skin from further irritation. For general tenderness, applying ice packs and hydrocortisone cream, as well as popping a NSAID like acetaminophen can bring relief, says Ganju. Also, avoid sex for 24 hours. The area is very sensitive and if there are tiny superficial tears caused by the process, they can become infected," says Ganjhu. Keep It All Off! Straining too hard and pressure put on the area during pregnancy can cause these swollen blood vessels in the rectal area, but you can also get them for no good reason, says Inra.
Whether yours is as small as a pea or as big as a grape, hemorrhoids can bleed, itch, or burn. To soothe the area ASAP, you can buy creams, ointments, or suppositories at most drugstores.
They usually contain a steroid that quells inflammation. Soaking in a sitz bath for 10 to 15 minutes two to three times a day or even just sitting naked on a warm, wet washcloth can also ease the ouch, says Ganjhu. Your long-term plan: drink more H2O, and up your fiber intakeeither in fiber-rich fruits and veggies, or a supplement like Metamucil or Benefiber.
Fiber bulks up your poop, making it easier to pass sans straining. A hot compress think: very warm washcloth is your best friend. Use it two to three times a day for five to 10 minutes at a time to help open the blocked duct, allowing the ingrown hair to become un-stuck and any accumulating fluid to drain, says Ganjhu.
If that doesn't help, or it feels like the sore is growing in size, see your doctor. She can lance it to drain the pus.
Your real safeguarding should come before, not after. Get your rectum used to anal play by starting with a finger, and definitely lube it up to make it easier—the experts suggest silicone-based lubricant for its durability. Keep wipes nearby for clean up after.
Speaking of which, fecal matter is full of bacteria, including e. If that spre to the vagina by switching from anal to vaginal sex—a big no-no! To reduce your risk, do a two or use an enema before engaging in anal sex. But DON'T use an enema after—it will push the bacteria further up into the colon, which can cause infection. Weight Loss.
