Question: I have had extremely irritating yellowish drainage onto the anus for the past 6 months. Various probiotics have not helped in fact one mixture made it worse. I have MRSA which flared up about the time this started but it may or may not have anything to do with this.

Very slight seepage, no soiling. Also, yellow appears at end of normal stool.
No swelling. The caustic drainage causes slight blood spots on toilet paper.
At first, 6-7 times/day. I cut back on food. Now 2-3 times/day. Normal for me.
No fever. My weight went from 154-144 when I cut back on food. I'm 5'8".
No history of disease.
MRSA flare has occurred twice, once in 2016 and then Oct. 2017. It occurs in the right temple eye area when exposed to too much sun. First it reddened and swells a into the eye. I was then given what came to be an ineffective antibiotic. Then it erupted. They took a culture and discovered MRSA in Oct. 2017. I was given a salve which cleared it up. I will correct the duration of current malady from 6 to 4 months.
