Stevey Stank Ass asks:

Up to a few months ago I was a very popular college student with lots of friends and had no trouble getting girls. Now this problem I have made me drop out of college, lose girlfriends, and my friends are disgusted to hang out with me.

My problem is that all of a sudden my ass really started to stink even after a shower. I mean it smells like I shit myself or like I just took a shit and didn't bother to wipe my ass. I can asure that I don't shit myself and I wipe my ass until clean. I even tried that sphincterine stuff which seems not to work for me. This problem made me drop out of college to spare myself the embarassment and haven't gotten laid in a while which kills me because girls ask me why I don't want to hang out with them and the 'sick' excuse is getting quite old. I seriously have no idea what to do, it is really bothering me because I am ashamed just to go out of my house. It is weird because when I sit down it feels like theres shit in my ass but when I go to wipe nothings on the napkin and the sphincterine just blends with the smell. If you could please help me because now I just sit at home like a loser and cannot hang out with my friends without feeling ashamed.





Dear Steve,

Thanks for the question!

Much as I hate to admit it, you are going to have to see your MD about this one. There are many causes of fecal odor--constipation being one. Other causes may be anatomic considerations. Examples include rectal prolapse, weakness of the anal sphincter or decreased rectal compliance. (I hate it when my rectum doesn't comply, don't you?)

Your doctor might consider doing a flexible sigmoidoscopy to inspect the colon and anus. Other tests you may want to discuss with your MD include an endorectal ultrasound to evaluate for structural abnormalities or anorectal manometry to evaluate for anal sphincter dysfunction.

Some studies have shown that intake of vitamin K can control fecal odor, but I don't have any information on this.

Good luck!

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Steve:

You may want to visit your minister or rabbi. A severely stinky ass often is a sure sign that a demon has taken up residence inside your digestive system. Demonic possession is frequently accompanied by sulfurous and extremely odiferous anal discharges that often are not accompanied by any noticeable solid discharge or liguid effluent.

Your abstenance from sex is an admirable way to avoid taking on any additional ass-stanky demons; however, you're most likely gonna have to get some professional and highly experienced help to exorcize the little demon you're currently hosting.

Good luck, and Peace in the Poopchute.

Steve,
You've got IBS with a body odor problem too. U mentioned that its hit u during college..like many i know (..i'm one of u..). No more fast food, processed food, processed sugars. Fruits, vegetables, flax oil, no red meat. Get used to it. Most find it really helps. Once your used to the new diet, you wont go back.

check out MSN bodyodorsupportgroup, and various IBS sites.

Peace,

Stevey: There's no shame in stank-ass. I've not polled the entire universe, but out of the numerous people with whom I've had contact, I'd say that 15% of them suffer from the same malaise as you.

See your GP for a full physical exam and necessary labs, start keeping a food diary (and make notations if you notice a difference in your odor from day to day as you may be suffering from food allergies), and do some reading up on "leaky butt syndrome" which is well documented on this site.

It's a process of elimination....

Even simpler than IBS, I think there may be a connection between young adults suddenly experiencing this problem and the fact that they've moved farther out of the sphere of influence of their parents. Eating more junk, now that they're having to do their own shopping, maybe? It's a theory.

But this is what cracked me up:

"Demonic possession is frequently accompanied by sulfurous and extremely odiferous anal discharges that often are not accompanied by any noticeable solid discharge or liguid effluent."

Yup, I got the same problem. Its disgusting. I've tried everything. Changing my diet, probiotics, charcoal capsules, internal body cleansing products like chlorophyl. Nothing helps.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Why knock any possibility, afterall I hope we are all reading and writing this because we have a common, desperate story and not because of a sick mind. Sinceit is hard to see the cause or solution, I'll take any cleansing I can get so long as it is from a discerning source and not exchanging one demon for another.

Hey dude sorry. For now I encourage you to use you dirty butt story for a mercy lay then along with that you may regain your confidence and lose the stinky streak. All asses stink. But only true buttholes smell.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Hey i had ur problem for a couple months but its gone now. It had to do with two possible things. One possibility is that i had a throat infection and infected tonsils which accumilated bacteria which would smell like ass and I would swallow it too. The other possibilty is that i smelled like pooh when i would buzz my bum hairs. I think the hairs when really short would get matted against my arse and either make me sweat more there or somehow create a stinky barrier which would emenate a stank odor. But anyway, I gargled salt water a lot, especially after meals, I took an antibiotic called avelox and drank lots of water and let my ass hair grow out. I hope this helps someone because this thing pretty much ruined my life for a while.

Hey Steve, I got the same problem for 7 years now. It's not coming from your butt, it coming from your body. I think that your intestine didn't has a normal bowel movement so it back up and the body use the sweat gland to get rid waste. I have weakness of the anal sphincter or decreased rectal compliance for while. I think most of you have these if you have the smell. Hey, Anonymous Coward (not verified) -- 04.19.2006, it does help by drinking salt water. ok will try that and where you got the antibiotics. I think that if I am not able to get rid of this problem in a couple of years I go on National Tv and address this problem to public so they can aware of this problem and help people have this problem. You guys can email me at Razzu02@yahoo.com Also this guy Rob he suffering with this problem on/off for 20 years. YOu can e-mail him at RobNJ35@aol.com. I see many people have this problem post throughout the internet like on Curezone.com(fecal odor) and google search but they can't seem to cure it. Even gastroenterologists have problem with it, they don't know about this problem. Many people, including me, went to see them, but they can't help us. I think we on our own now. This problem has causing alot of social life as you guys know. Hope it all go away. thanks

yep, i am one who suffers the same malady... i did even consider the whole demonic possession thing for a while as i have a strong interest in occultism/magick :) i think diet changes as stated above are a huge step toward better colon health, might even want to go to the extreme of trying a course of cleanses accompanied by a course of colon hydrotherapy, accupunture can help, as odours/smells are part of their diagnostic, also (this may not apply) sinus (catarrh) and/or gum (gingivitis) disease can contribute toward bad odours also, one thing to consider is the way our noses are able to adapt to smells too, making it hard for some to acurately gauge when and where they may be stinking...especially tough when in public tight spots, which absolutely sucks when you stink like a sewer. try a good homeopathic/doctor as a way to complement any medical doctors treatment(s). there are also good anal/prostate exercises within the bagua/taoist system, particularly the deer exercise for men or women, a good way to strengthen any weak anal sphincters. excellent for prostates too. as advised above, get away from meats, alcohol/high sugar foods & processed foods! these are shit anyway ;) meat takes ages to digest within the human digestive tract, and may sit there for a very long time rotting...naturopathy is a great complement too, it is really just trying to find a good pracititioner who is willing to get their teeth around the problem & willing to perservere through it with you...as i am still trying to find one myself who doesn't just give up after a time trying this and that to no avail... otherwise, GODBLESS and GOODLUCK!

smelly/leaky butt, IBS and GAD (general anxieity disorder), all tied in together. was takin lamictal for migraines and anxiety, along with clorazepate 10mg twice daily. and bingo! my poopy-chute starts smellin like lemon scented dish soap! and no migraines! so.....i starts developing hand tremors from the lamictal (anti-convulsant), which worked wonders for the migraines. i stopped takin the lamictal so i could read my own writing. so guess what? out in the garden with a bunch of flies hangin round wonderin, "where the hell's the turd." i don't EEEVEN think of eatin jalapenos, which i love. but when you get a chance, ask your doc about prozac or clorazepate. you might just be surprised. good luck all.

have the same prob, tried everything!!! nothing works. But, just got back from doctor and prescribed me Actilax. heard there are amazing results for this sort of fucked up illness. dont need prescription, just buy over the counter. or GlycoLax. 5 mills twice a day for two weeks (for the alcalax). if you get results eventually tone down dosage. this shit clears out bowel clean. no shit can fester in the bowell. also try fibre supplements such as Metamusal or what ever they have at the chemist. will let us poor souls know how this goes and post results in a couple of weeks. dont let this controll your life as it has done mine. anyone has any other good ideas post them here. peace

I just noticed a horrible ordor which seems to be coming from both my anus and vagina. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I have been kind of constipated for about 2 mos. Also, any solutions or possible medical causes anyone knows of? Kinda scary!

I think that you are taking the wrong approach to this. Why not market your smelly ass. This world is full of crazy people who have a fetish for just about anything. You could be their God. Also remeber these words of wisdom: "A smelly ass is a normal ass".

Assley's picture

I'm having this problem now. It all started a few months ago when i started getting some bright red blood in my poo...then it was kind of pinkish on the toilet paper...and well eventually, one time i wiped my ass and it was solid bright red blood. I eventually gave up and went to the doctor because I thought it was hemorroids or something. Turns out I had HPV. That's right. Genital warts...specifially anal warts. (don't have ever anal sex btw) Ever since then, I've had a kind of sour smell eminating from my pants and underwear after i've worn them just for a few hours. I'm guessing the warts have cause some kind of compromise in the rectum which is allowing anal leakage. As soon as these things go away (or get frozen off) my ass (and rectum) are gonna be happy as hell.

Hmmmn. I don't think anyone's mentioned anal warts in this thread, before.

Here is some interesting information about them:

Definition-- Anal warts, also known as condyloma acuminata, are small warts that can occur in the rectum.

Description-- Initially appear as tiny blemishes that can be as small as the head of a pin or grow into larger cauliflower-like protuberances. They can be yellow, pink, or light brown in color, and only rarely are painful or uncomfortable.(I'm sorry, but if I had a CAULIFLOWER hanging outta my butt, I think THAT WOULD BE UNCOMFORTABLE) In fact, infected individuals often are unaware that they exist. Most cases are caused by sexual transmission.

Most individuals have between one to 10 genital warts thtat range in size from roughly 0.5-1.9 cm2. Some will complain of painless bumps or itching, but often, these warts can remain completely unnoticed.

Causes and symptoms-- Condyloma acuminatum is one of the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD) in the United States. Young adults aged 17 to 33 years are at greatest risk. Risk factors include smoking, using oral contraceptives, having multiple sexual partners, and an early coital age. In addition, individuals who have a history of immunosuppression or anal intercourse are also at risk.

Roughly 90% of all anal warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) types 6 and 11, which are the least likely of over 60 types of HPV to become cancerous. Anal warts are usually transmitted through direct sexual contact with someone who is infected with condyloma acuminata anywhere in the genital area, including the penis and vagina. Studies have shown that roughly 75% of those who engage in sexual contact with someone infected with condyloma acuminata will develop these warts within three months.

Doesn't mention bleeding, though. I think somethin' else is goin' on down there!

I guess we all found this site because we are all suffering from the same problem.

I'm in my late 20's now and I first started noticing the smell when I was 23. It happened right around the first time I thought I had my first hemorrhoid. The smell lasted about 6 months and then faded away. Well 5 years later it seems to be back, and just when it seems that I am getting another fun round of hemorrhoids.

The smell is exactly the same as 'Assley' described. A sour smell that seems to first be noticable a couple hours after I shower. It seems to seep into my jeans also. If I try and wipe my ass, nothin there. When I first notice it on any given day I start to break out in a sweat, especially when someone makes a passive aggressive comment about the smell, and then it starts escalating, bad! I sometimes have to leave where ever I am because the cycle starts causing me to have a nervous breakdown!

Anyhow, I believe that I may actually have genital warts now. About 6 months ago a girl I had slept with called and said that she had been diagnosed with HPV, but that guys could not get checked for it. If it wasn't for Assley here I would have never put the two together.

I already had an appointment set-up with a proctologist to check on the 'roids, but now I can at least tell her about the exposure to HPV and that I may have a higher chance of having anal warts than just the 'roids.

I promise to come back to this site and post some sort of follow up on what happens (appt is next Monday). I could care less about the bleeding, the stank ass is ruining my carreer.

Hey guys. I'm 29 and I've had this since I was 16. It completely ruined my life. How can one function in the world and be happy and productive when they smell like shit for no reason. When I was younger people made all sorts of comments. Now they just avoid me. I can srub my asshole for an hour and as soon as I fart once I stink all day. Or lots of times I get that sour smell and smell like shit before I even fart. I dread being indoors. I won't even attempt a relationship because as soon as she realized that I smell terrible she would just leave. Doctors have told me to sit on the pot and pass gas. One told me about an over the counter pill that reduces gas in the colon and therefore the stinky part is reduced. Haven't tried it yet and I can't remember the name of it but it's probably next to Beano at the store. Anyhow, it seems pretty clear that not one person has any good advice for those of us who suffer with this. The demon thing has to be true. This is a terrible thing to live with and therefore a life that is wasted. It's unfortunate but I just keep to myself and stuff and i guess that's how it's meant to be. Oh well.

So, to report back: I do not have anal warts. Thank god. The doc stuck something up my ass, which I was ok with, then she TURNED it. I literally deep vocally screamed. I didn't know she was going to turn it.

Honestly, now that I've had time to look at it all, I'm lucky. Thank god I don't have HPV. She gave me a topical cream that has menthol that hurt like a sob (it had menthol!).

I've been curbing my diet, and for the mean time my problem has gone away. I know what it feels like though and I wish all of us the best.

I'll post again once I grab the name of the cream she gave me, I don't have it with me.

yea, i have the same problem. Gonna have to leave my job soon if this keeps up. The irritating thing is that i cant smell it much myself, until people around me start complaining. It started 9 years ago!. Tried lots but just went to http://www.curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=561201#i . This girl seems to know a solution which might help some. Have many here tried glycolax? Im going straight to my doctor tomorrow to try get it.Hope i can get it in ireland!?

I am currently dating a guy and he is a big guy with a big smile and a big heart. I am extremely attracted to him but there is a big problem, his rear end smells very bad. He loves to get oral sex and actually loves getting his anus licked as well. I won't have any problem but his smell is just too much.
I once took a bath with him and washed his bottom area very good. However, when we had sex later, it smelled the same. What is wrong with him? I can't just tell him that his but stinks and that it is giving me nausia even when I am giving him an oral sex. What should I do? Is it because he is overweight? I'm seriously having problem with this.

Man, this is an epidemic. I just have the gas that seems to want to come out of my shoot everyday at work and on a date or at a meeting. This is trifling..and i am too snobby to have this, crippling fart thing. Do you know doctors will not even give you disability for this illness? That is jacked! We need to send these doctors who send us back to work stinking, to their jobs with doggy poop in their coat, see how they like it! But, nothing has helped...but i have ordered some fart filter underpants. hope that works...

Is it normal to have a slight smell even after wiping/washing? I always kinda thought so, since, I mean...that IS where poop comes out of for x amount of years. But the smell ends up on the inside of my jeans too.

Well I've got the works. First of all, there's the itching and pain of the hemorrhoids (at least, I think that's what they are--little black specks around the anus) that I'm too shy to go to the doctor about, so I just deal. But they are PERMANENTLY draining some gross light-colored liquidy stuff (which every now and then turns pink from what I presume is blood) and smells really strong and sour. Recently, however, it's turned into a literal shitty smell, and it never goes away. I put on a pair of underwear and it already smells after a couple of seconds (I've tested). The computer chair in my house smells from where I've sat on it, and my entire family says, "WTF is the stench on this chair?" but I won't tell them it's me, so they just wonder. Everything my ass comes in contact with starts to smell, which is really great when it's hot and my car has been sitting in the heat all day.... And when I'm standing up, if you happen to glance at my ass, you can see wet spots from where the liquid is draining. I know that when I'm able to smell my ass, others have got to smell it too. The other day my dad walked by near where I was standing and said, "Something really stinks in here...." I guess everyone's going to start assuming I've got farting problems or something.

Now, to top matters off, because of all the liquid that never stops draining, I have diaper rash. Had that for three weeks now, and it just got worse again. That's fun, too--looks and feels exactly like a sunburn between the cheeks. And I'm still afraid to go to the doctor. I'm afraid to tell ANYBODY. I'm just waiting for my boyfriend to discover it someday soon.

I had this serious anal itching problem about six months ago. I mean it was to the point that I was in cube world trying to position my self so no one would see me go for a deep itch. Once accomplished I realized it only made it worse. I also was starting to notice this stench that I didn't want to admit to. Every damn time I bent down to tie my shoes I would get this whiff that made me run for the can to make sure I didn't shit my pants. Finally I started doing some research and picked up a bidet seat from bidetservices.com and I shit you not, within a week there was no more anal itching and the stench was gone. The next week I had to go out of town and I didn't have a bidet and the damn itching came back but once I was back on my bidet seat I was set.

Years ago, my mom routinely changed into and out of her uniform in a nurses' locker room at her hospital.

For several days, every time she bent down from the seat to tie her shoes, there was this awful stench, and it kept getting worse. She thought, "I have GOT to go to the gynecologist! Something's not RIGHT down there!"

Turns out someone had accidentally left a tuna sandwich in a lower locker while they were on vacation.
