I have been an IBS sufferer for years now and I am also lactose intolerant. I notice that when my IBS flares up, I develop anal bleeding, itching and leakage.
I understand that the bleeding and itchy bum would be due to the fact that I have a bowel movement 5 times a day or more during these bad patches. But I was wondering if the anal leaking is normal?
It’s like my anus is moist and even a bit squishy at times. If I sit for long then I notice that even my underwear is slightly damp by the bum area.
