Having diarrhea is never a pleasant experience. When it burns or hurts to go, that makes matters even worse. Read on to learn what could be causing your burning diarrhea , how to treat it at home, and when to call your doctor for further testing. There are a number of reasons you might experience burning diarrhea.
When I go to the toilet faeces I get a burning sensation during and for a short time afterwards in my anus. It is very painful and I am beginning to get it quite regularly. I do not eat much spicy food and I am not a heavy drinker, although I may have a couple of pints of Guinness a few nights a week after work. I believe I must be lacking something in my diet, but am unsure as to what it is. Pain in this area is called proctalgia and the commonest cause is an anal fissure.
