What causes constant moist feeling around the anus?
Use Cotton inner wears
Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic.
I went through your query and understood your concerns.
Sweat glands around Anus are more as compared to arms. This is a natural thing to keep anal area moist to prevent friction rubbing. Some amount of moistness is commonly seen. If its annoying you, then
You can use cotton inner wears and try to wash and dry with cotton after using wash rooms. You need not worry for it.
Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.
life style modifications
Excessive moist feeling at the anal region may be due to excessive sweating due to increased metabolism or friction which occurs more common in hairy obese person.
The other cause may be in the initial stage of anal prolapse or anal fissure where in due to stretching or irritation there will be body response by excessive secretion.
So to avoid them have food at regular intervals, have more of fiber diet, practice good bowel movements (defecate only if you feel like defecation, don't pressurize yourself to defecate,no manual irritation or touching anal region and keep the area clean and dry.) Along with this daily 30-45 min exercise will help in regularizing the bowel as well as secretion. SO life style modifications will help you.
I hope this information helps you to maintain your health. Follow the above measures and you will find the difference in few days. If you have further query feel free to ask. I will be glad to answer them.
Wish you good health.
