Brief Answer:
Please provide more information

Detailed Answer:
I had gone through your question very diligently and I really appreciate your concern
Moist anus might be related to fissure or fistula in Ano or an infected anal gland.
Here I would like further information for better assessment of the condition
Are you having itching or burning sensation around anus?
Since how long you have this problem?
Do you have any history of constipation?

In my opinion you should take lots of dietary fiber supplements, fresh fruits and vegetables
You can apply anaesthetic ointment like lignocaine in case of pain or burning sensation around anus.
Have plenty of fluid

Please write back to me with these details so that I will be able to tell you more accurately.
Best wishes

Hi there,

I was doing some tantric sex exercises contracting anal sphincter area about twelve years ago. Since then up until today, my anal sphincter muscles got strongly swollen so that everytime I go to the toilet to have my bowel emptied the swollen internal anal muscles comes out of the anus as I try to squeeze the faeces out very hard.

The problem is that most of the time for the last twelve years I have been forced to use my finger to help quicker get the faeces out of the bowels thus sometimes having to stay at the toilet for almost an hour until I get my bowels completely emptied.

The good thing is that I do not have any pains or bleedings.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me the right advice about successfully solving this inconvenience with the swollen anal muscles.

Many thanks!

I had a small anal skin tag removed by liquid nitrogeon on the external anal rim 3 weeks ago and since then have constant pressure of wanting to have a bowel movement. The pressure is so bad and does not go away even after a bowel movement. Could liquid nitrogeon have damaged me

Hello. I m very concerned about new symptoms that have made themselves known gradually over the last year or so (on top of already exhibiting IBD symptoms but unable to diagnose). The most recent symptoms include watery and loose bowel movements, leakage of mucous preceding a bowel movement, a large amount of mucous accompanying bowel movements - both long and thin like a worm and in clumps, a foul stench (similar to a dogs anal glands) and discomfort with bowel movements and abdominal pain. This is in addition to my typical symptoms that I ve experienced over the last 15 years, very similar to typical IBD. the stench, discomfort and large amounts of mucous have me very concerned & I m interested in getting a doctors thoughts on that, especially. Thank you - Cynthia
