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.

Wow.. So much emotional and psychological suffering, undeserved, needless, utterly ridiculous.. suffering and self-imposed social isolation all because of smells. I myself cannot really tell anymore whether all this was for real or was it some insane episode of ultra social anxiety disorder of some idiotic kind.

I am a female at 27 now and I began suffering from weird smell approx. at the age of 23. At first, my first gynecologic exam turned out HPV (which is not associated with smells, by the way) and some serious case of anaerobic bacteria. So I underwent antibiotics treatment. For a brief while it was good, but then the smells returned. All kinds of them - sweet, sour, fishy, shitty .. oscillating constantly. I began to withdraw from social life more and more, I missed on so many parties and fun. I voluntarily alienated myself from society, because I felt like freak. A freak that everyone could smell from a distance.

This is really a long story. Great torment. Dreadful experience. Anyway, after numerous more visits to gynecologists and another round of antibiotics in the end, after reading tons of articles, forum posts and info, I came to the conclusion that all my smelly troubles were due to weak immune system and Candida Albicans infestation therefore. So I modified my diet accordingly - cut on sugar and fats basically. I started taking vitamins, B complex, vit. C and Candida clear formulas.. I began working out regularly and in the course of an year I am consistently seeing great improvement. To the point now that I begin to feel normal again, I regained my confidence, I am not afraid of being close to other people and so on.

Reading all the comments here I get so sad, I have experienced everything that all you guys and gals describe - freaking out indoors with other people, constantly hearing comments about me everywhere - at work, on the streets, in clubs .. A little over an year ago I was at my worst, I felt like I will go insane and I too though of suicide, because I was feeling like I cannot bare this anymore.

But, as I said, I managed it, though I still feel psychologically crippled from this experience really. Make yourselves tests for Candida Albicans and work to strenghten your immune system. Also, for rebuilding intestinal walls try Aloe Vera gel (from inside the leaves) it is effective.

I hug you all and NEVER GIVE UP ON LIFE for some banal troubles, as troubling as it may be.

I want to add some more to the below post. Weird body odors are usually the result of improperly working digestive enzymes, which is a genetic condition or bacterial/ fungal overgrowth in the intestines / genital spaces. I presume most of you people do not have the genetic disorders, so I strongly reckon that your troubles come from bacterial or fungal overgrowth that has been building up in you over the course of many years due to improper life style mostly. So, the end result - your immune system weakens and cannot ward off pathogenic microorganisms and thus hell brakes loose.

I suggest to all to make yourselves tests for pathogenic microorganisms in your guts / genitals (usually all over these places - vagina, anus, intestines) and to begin a healthy life style - stick to the Candida diet, which is basically a diet low on simple sugars and saturated/ trans fats. In the first few months you should try to complete refrain from sugars and alcohol. You may allow yourselves a glass or two of red wine (tannins are strong antifungals too), but this is it.

Research for antifungal herbs and supply yourselves some food supplements. As I said, Aloe Vera gel is an effective immune booster, antifungal and repairs intestinal walls. It should be combined with other herbal supplements like Oregano oil, eat Garlic (one or two cloves at dinner), as well as B vitamins and vitamin C regularly. Exercise. Be strict, persistent and keep up with the diet for at least a few months. For me, I will stick to this new life style for life. This helped me, I hope it will help you too.

Oh, and another very important "ingredient" is PROBIOTICS. You should buy some at least 5 billions CFUs per capsule. Also eat yogurt, plain and unsweetened.

Think positive. Regain control of your life, YOU ARE THE MASTER, not slave to your body. Ask questions, I will follow this thread.

Hello to all. Well I've been on this website for a few yrs now and I've tried just about EVERYTHING but I must admit that I never really stuck to anything past 2 wks and if I did I usually cheated and ate some b/s. For those who do not know my story well I've been battling this demon of a condition since I was 19 but was diagnosed with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) as cause to my underarm odor. Mind you the doctor that I seen didn't even bother to see it he instantly wrote me a script for drysol and sent me on my way,wasn't a very nice doctor. At the time I had no insurance so everything was coming out of pocket. So I went on a wild goose chase did a very UNNECESSARY surgery called ETS which made my problem from an 5 to a 18 literately..it caused me to SWEAT excessively so not only do I have BO I also have CREATED a problem that cannot be reversed or cured because they cut out a few of my nerves along my sypathetic chain. I HATE myself for it. It gets worse to fix THAT problem in 2003 I had the Skoog Procedere done where they literately cut a hole under each armpit and removed the glands and sewed me back up..my arms were stuck to my side until the skin stretched..which made my once BEAUTIFUL Breast UGLY,STRETCHED OUT and scar'd for Life..I wish I would've had the internet back in 2000-2003 because I would've never ever EVER had any surgerys done! i was on Tons of antibiotics and antifungals for 2 yrs because my stitches kept opening under my arms and i had to be hospitalzed and given antibiotics via Iv. Fwd to a few yrs ago I finally was diagnosed with SEVERE SYSTEMIC CANIDIASIS OF THE COLON AND LEAKY GUT due to being on antibiotics for all of that time. Doc gave me a script for nistatin and some other crap that I refuse to take because it'll only do me more harm. So I. Got online googled intensive colon cleaning,body detoxing and candida diet and regimen. I tried a bit of everything but I will tell you what I noticed worked the BEST for me..I went on an ALL I can and wanted to eat EGG WHITE & cucumber diet I took a Cheap product called Yeast Cleanse by Solaray for 2 weeks straight..nooooo cheating and my BO went from 100% to 20% -30% in 2 weeks. I did good until I went out drank some Vodka ate fast food. I basically binged my way (a few days) back to smelling. But I was FREE of embarrassment for that little bit of time. Felt awesome! So I now KNOW what it is that causes my bo and what cures it. Like my doctor said I've been suffering from candida of the colon and leaky gut for 10 yrs it is NOT going to go away overnite...he said I could expect my bo to go away within 4 weeks but I would HAVE to stick to the taking an antifungal along with a strong probiotic,candida diet 6months to a yr. RAYSOON you can email me at JustMarisol23 @aol.com If anyone needs someone to talk to feel free to email me. Btw I'm NOT cured of my BO which is why I decided to post today because I started a Chlorella,And probiotic FAST. WHEN I WAKE UP IT'LL BE DAY 2. I Will not be consuming any food during this time just the chlorella which is actually a superfood. I had tons of energy today..I'm going to give this MY ALL this time. I have no choice really. I'm unemployed and I only have enough money to pay next months rent after that I'm screwed!. I haven't seen my family in YRS because I'm tooooo ashamed of myself..my sweating and bo. They are very clean ppl and would just look at me in disgust I'm sure. Atleast that's how I feel. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed and stay STRONG. I HAVE NO CHOICE NO,I got to do it! Before I'll admit I was used to living like a rat,being a loner and sitting at home eating fast food and drinking shots of vokda but I've realized that I've wasted my life away. I had money saved up so I didn't have to worry about my next meal or how I was going to pay my rent but now my money has literately ran out and I HAVE TO GET OFF MY ASS so yeah I'm sticking to this Chlorella And Probiotic fast. Google Chlorella's effect on Probiotics and you'll see what I'm talking about. Well I will be posting daily and even taking pictues of anything crazy that I pass,lol. Sick but some ppl actually want to see that kind of shit,lol. Again my email is JUSTMARISOL23 @ aol. Com sorry for rambling its late and I'm very spacey right now..no food and I'm sleepy as heck. God bless us all!

My question why do you wipe only? why don't you wash it with water and soap?? I am really shocked I never expected that we in the third world are more sophisticated then the first world because after we wipe we wash our asses with soap and water, then dry it, that's what we do in the middle east, please think about it, ask your self why? for you seriously because nothing is worse then someone thinks wiping his ass is enough to prevent diseases.

Olfactory Reference Syndrome (ORS), also known as Autodysomophobia and Bromosis, is characterized by excessive, irrational fear that one is emitting a foul or unpleasant odor. The obsession may be an exaggerated, disproportionate concern with a natural body smell, or may involve an entirely imagined odor. ORS goes beyond normal concern with one's hygiene, and may significantly impair academic and professional functioning, as well as interpersonal relationships. In extreme cases, individuals with Olfactory Reference Syndrome may quit work and avoid social situations in an effort to avert the embarrassment they imagine they will experience when others detect the alleged odor.
Common Olfactory Reference Syndrome obsessions include:

Exaggerated fear of having extremely bad breath (halitophobia)
Thoughts of having a foul, noticeable anal odor
Belief in having a foul, noticeable vaginal odor
Fear of having a foul overall body odor
Fear of having an unnatural, non-human or chemical odor
Believing others' behaviors or comments are related to the imagined odor (e.g., another's cough, sneeze, or turning of the head is due to the alleged odor)

I have read everyone's comment and how they too (including me) suffer from this problem. This is a very emotional problem and i thank god that i'am not alone and for this website for allowing us to come together and figure out what is the next move to fixing it. mines started at the age of 13, i was in class and i started to get this gas feeling but since i was in the presence of other people i tried to keep it in. Later i notice my body always felt this way and i would always keep it for the same reasons. but no matter how hard i tried some gas would come out and students started to complain they hold their nose whenever around me. their face would turn red due to holding their breathe. but now there's no gas and still i smell. i am 19 now and years later i still have the same problem. I take showers everyday and i brush my teeth, if you could see me you would never think a person like me have this issue. i make sure i look good everywhere i go and my beauty attracts many people to befriend me. i do have a social life, i party i continue to go to school and get a degree. BUT i know i smell which makes me soooo self conscious. one thing i noticed over the years is that not everyone hold their nose and say mean comments, i feel like not everyone smell it by the way (i do not smell anything) so i really don't know how people would act when im around. i think i smell like shit because thats what i hear people say but i cant smell it and my family always say im fine , but i think they are use to it like me so they dont smell anything. i dont know but i just want to stop feeling this way it has gone on far tooo long and iam desperate to cure it.

My poop shoot smelled so bad for a month and I was freaking out.. I did go to the Dr. 1st. found out I had hpv but no idea how I got that. I have never taken the ol one eyed snake in the shoot.

I also had a bad infection from oral surgery. Once on antiboitics for about a month until they could re do the surgery it all went away.

The tea tree oil is also good to help you.

I take miralax, also known as glycolax, every morning on an empty stomach a couple of hours before i eat. This has without a doubt helped me out tremendously. The smell is not 100% gone but its close. The gastro doc told me that it is a very safe chemical that i can take for the rest of my life. The way i see it is if im not regular im gonna have the stench. So i think constipation is the one to blame here. Im gonna try bedatine next which someone above me posted about.

nobody ever complains to me about the smell but i know its there i wont waste everyones time moaning about how much unneccisary stress this is bringing me i used to get enough pussy but i havn't been with a girl in 2 years because i don't want to dissapoint myself, i go in the shower on the regs and keep myself clean but one time i didn't go in the shower for 3 days and it didn't smell as much as it did WTF you'd think a shower would get rid of the problem, anyway when i was on holiday i didn't suffer from these smells and thought they were gone but once i got back to the shithole of a place i live in it was back straight away i found this so perplexing but realised that maybe it was caused by the slight depression i constantly feel living in england (stress and depression sometimes cause IBS) i also noticed that when i go near certain things that smell the two smells kinda create a new one for example where i walk my dog there is a sewage system and when i get back i smell alot like the sewage rather than just plain shit,i do not feel too embaressed as i dont really give a fuck what people think of me but if this carrys on im gonna be lonely unemployed and socially exiled so like the rest of you on this site my only question is WHAT THE FUCK CAN I DO TO CHANGE THIS BEFORE I OFF MYSELF

Use a natural oil like coconut or sesame seed, put the oil on toilet paper and you can remove most of the residual "stinky butt" wipe the whole anal area, once done use dry paper towel to remove excess oil, you can powder dry but the oil is beneficial to skin and will absorb naturally. This takes care of the problem...it's cheap, clean, effective, it works!

I have been suffering with this problem for about 5 years, and the problem is on and off. The most disturbing thing that I have noticed is that it seems contagious, and I don't know if anyone else seems to notice it. I am %99 sure itis, and if you look back and think about it, maybe you would see it too.

In my school, I feel like I was the first person to have this problem, and then I noticed that the people I sat next to seemed to sometimes smell like farts. And no they didn't fart, they smelled like it. And now after 5 years, I feel like almost everyone I know has it, it just affects some people more. I am positive that I am not just paranoid and I am actually very observant.

Also, I've noticed that showers actually seem to make the problem worse. I go to camp every summer and each time the problem seems to just disappear, and I believe that it is for two reasons, no showers(bathe in lake), and very little to no stress.

I have the same problem it's very hard sometimes. Basically I still don't know why I smell I think it was something I was born with but growing up with that it's hard to have many friends things like that you can't smell it but others can. I tried everything on the market for it spray on deodarants, tea tree or deodarant supps, deodarant powders, special washes, wipes, deodarant creams, special probiotics whatever nothing worked. The doc told me baking soda baths that also didnt work. I feel for you all stay strong and God bless you still have value in this world

Just because people can't stand the way you smell doesn't mean they don't need you or don't want to be around you or don't like you. they're just embarrased to be seen around you because people might think they smell too. Don't take it personal, just be good at what you do and don't be afraid to help people when they need it. They can tell the difference between someone who's trying to not smell bad and someone who is just plain lazy. You still have a purpose here. Smelling is not your problem, it's just something you can't help.

Hey guys i thought my ass smelled too (simply because it smelled like shit literally). Then one day i went to the dentist for my regular check up. She gave me a mouthwash called Andorex. It turns out that that shitty smell was coming from my mouth. I dont know what's in it but it worked. Give it a try i hope you all get better even if you dont just accept it and get on with your life. If people will love you they should love you the way you are.

I have been researching this same issue and am moving forward with my own plan of action. I am going to follow the candida diet, cut out coffee, alcohol, and sugars. Use allimax to knock bad bacteria and probiotics to supplement good bacteria. I am also adding fiber, using a total cleanse supplement, and a colon cleanse. I will report back in 30 days if I have any success.

Hello Im not Good in English So I Hope People Understand me.

Always drink plenty of water. To clean your body. Clean the inner body more. dont use many product like deodorant cologne or anything. If u use that you make yourself sweat. Eat solid food like boiled corn:) beans vegetables. Dont insecure no matter what people do make you insecure. You must add character in u. Character that hard like stone to avoid being shy. Always be happy no matter what happen. Dont be shy do think happy forget people what they say.

Drink water more clean your body. Dont drink wine. Wine make food very liquid. Dont panic. Panic make you more smells.

I have struggled with strong body odor and this has worked for me big time. 1st I use citronella shampoo to bathe with both body and hair. 2nd I make wipes with purell hand sanitizer liquid not foam. I apply the purell in the morning after showering and then maybe mid day or afternoon when I feel sweaty in the lower area. It doesn't cure me but I smell good for a day and don't have to worry about embarrassing odor at work. One thing to note is do not apply water before putting the citronella shampoo or purell wipes in your nether regions. direct contact works best to kill the smell

After readings some of these posts I would like to say DONT USE HOUSEHOLD CONCOTIONS IN YOUR ANAL OR GENITAL AREA! these can be very dangerous (you could injure your colon with hemmorhoids, sentinel piles, fissures etc. or put chemical toxins into your body.) If you are going to try some remedies buy it from the store something that has been FDA approved and read all the ingredients. I would like to share my knowledge and experience about this problem for those who are suffering with this problem. For everyone if you have a genital or anal odor go to the doctor first to rule out any infections. For the ladies if you go to the doctor and have no infections but you still smell you can try going to a naturopathic doctor. My naturopathic doctor told me vaginal odor is from a wacky ph level and then bacteria can grow there and to try HMF candida products such as the supps or capsules but you have to keep them in the fridge. There are also spays from "sweetspotlabs" or deodarants but use sparingly if at all. Tea tree oil products desgined for the genital area can also work well at killing the smell. There are great products from "RePHresh" that claim to work as well such as supps or capsules. There was something advertised on the doctors called "waterworks" where water flows from tubing and flows out of the vagina instead of getting stuck there like some traditional douches could.It also is made of stainless steel which is supposed to inhibit microbes. If you have any odor from your anal area I would recommend going to the doctor and getting a sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. There are also products like "devrom" that claim to take away any fecal odor. There are also pills like champex or odor cleanse i heard about that such a special type of mushroom that kills body odor but it might take a couple weeks for that to work. For those with incontinence there are exercises you can do to strenthen the rectal muscles. God bless everyone and dont listen to any nasty comments from ppl these ppl could need education about the issue. Some ppl shower and it gets rid of the smell and they think it will work for everyone but everyones body chemistry is different. If infections are ruled out you can also try screening for metabolic disorders like trimethuria. Some ppl just sweat more and sweat gland removal works for some.

I found this site because I was trying to google "why does my house all the sudden smell like old stew." Anyway, I am a physician and I have read most of the comments of buying this and that above. I would try simple things first. Most commonly the problem is due to mild rectal prolapse. This is where the sphincter muscle allows part of the rectum tissue to bulge out. Usually this happens after a bowel movement and almost assuredly after a constipated or straining movement...which by the way is also the main cause of hemorrhoids. What you should do is after every bowl movement and wipe...go to the sink and put a thin coat of soap on your index finger and push the rectal tissue back in where it belongs...you may have to hold it there for a moment or repeat this several times if the tissue continues to come out. You need to try to flex your sphincter muscles to keep this tissue inside. If this tissue is not pushed in then it will cause foul odors and most likely hemorrhoids. You will soon be able to tell when this tissue is out of place so to speak. If it has been aloud to hang out for a long while then you sphincter muscles are too laxed...you could try strengthening them by doing exercises of flexing your sphincter (puckering not pushing out) while you watch TV or driving your car. Laxed muscle tone can me caused by too much alcohol, being physically out of shape, obesity, and smoking. I won't get into the physics of why these things cause prolapse.
The other causes good be a rectal skin tags left over from old healed hemorrhoids..they are hard to clean..if they are the cause the most Family Medicine docs can remove these in their office...or they can refer you to a surgeon who can do this in their office.
You could also have what's called a "fistula" with is a small tunnel like hole that originates from your rectal tissue inside to the sphincter area outside...it can be very tiny...and it can leak fecal matter and odor...It is common with women who have given birth and had tearing in the vaginal rectal area. In fact fistulas can also be from the rectal vault to the vagina causing fecal matter to leak from the rectum into the vagina...you will have to see an OB/GYN who does reconstruction surgery to have this fixed..but it is fixable and most of the time not that difficult.
You could also have the beginnings of a rectal abscess but usually these turn quite painful in a short amount of time...but I have seen plenty of patients who were diabetics who did not feel pain with their abscesses and they came in due to the smell coming from under their skin.
There is also whats known a pilonidal cyst..which is a defect in the tissue wall usually on the sacral area which is just right above where your buns separate. This is a defect that was there at birth and usually doesn't act up unless the area gets irritated. During WWI and WWII lot of soldiers had this problem due to the bouncing they endured in the jeeps they had to ride. A pilonidal cyst can be drained if it is full of puss and fecal matter..and after it heals it will have to be surgically removed and repaired. It is under the skin so you can't see it...A fistula is also not going to me seen unless you have a magnifying glass and know what you are looking for...leave this to the physicians please .... I don't care how much someone loves you..they don't want to know you that well! I will say there are plenty of physicians not worth their salt...as they will brush you off and had you some antibiotics or give you some verbal remedy to try and they will not even look at your rectal area....Refuse to pay them if they do not or report them to their supervisor and don't pay them..they are not supposed to be disgusted of squeamish about looking at any body part...and if they are they are doing a disservice to the patients who come to them. I know from experience that patients with an embarrassing problem usually wait until they can take it no more before they will come in...they are highly embarrassed and hope with time the problem will go away..by the time they are there they are desperate for a cure...I personally would hate to be in that position and have a physician not even look at my problem...that would just compound the psychological problems the patient is already feeling.
Lastly, yes antibiotics could be used. One week of Keflex and Flagyl will usually kill anything.
One more lastly!..Change toilet paper...to the kind that is thicker for tougher or however they advertise...the kind that doesn't fall apart! Read the label on the package it will tell you what you are buying...I have had to do a lot of vaginal and rectal exams and 50% of people have toilet paper stuck to their private parts and they don't even know it...
Opps one more thing...black poop is bad..it means an upper intestinal bleed ....these have to investigated and stopped....bright red bleeding is bleeding from an area near the rectum and usually either internal hemorrhoids (the painless but if it continues needs to be seen by a physician..painful means external hemorrhoids or fissures in the tissue..they need tender care and reduction or removal is they persist) or polyps which can be cancerous or none cancerous...Everyone gets a little rectal bleeding every now and then...give it a few days to go away first...do not go to the ER if you see a few drops of blood in the toilet water or some on the toilet paper...go to your regular doctor or get a regular doctor...If you go to the ER they will runs blood test to make sure you are not anemic and then send you home if you are not...and you will still have to go to your regular doctor for the work up..but now you will be getting a huge bill around $3000. for going to the ER. Use the ER for emergencies only please...we have people having heart attacks in the waiting room because our rooms are full of mom's bringing their kids to the ER for a mosquito bite or an earache or a cough for 3 hours or a nosebleed or a nightmare....I could go on and on.
Hope this helps...good luck

Apparently its all in my head!!! If its realy all in my head could my docter explain why some sick person in my college wrote on the blackboard CHRIS STINKS OF SHIT, HAVE A BATH.

Wot a bunch of nasty immature selfish f_cks.

Its brought back a memory from school when I recieved a random note in the classroom saying I was stinking out the class. over a decades past and still nothing has changed.lol

I'm having the same smelly problem and i noticed it is due to stress. Your situation could be different. When the stress level go high smell problem become worst. Try some stress reducing exercise and see whether it can be controlled. Even exercises like running will help if that is the case or can go to a MD for help.

My 22 year old grandson has the same order proble that is explained here. He smokes and drinks alot and he's obese and bleeds from his rectum.
I assume that the bleeding comes from a bleeding stomach ulcer. He has spots of blood on the seat of his pants that soaks into cushions and furniture that leaves a horrendous foul ordor everywhere that he sits. The ordor he has is at it's worse when he's sleeping and it is unbearable. I somehow don't think that he knows that he smells as bad as he does because he doesn't do anything about it. I am about ready to move out of the house, I can't take it anymore and I don't want to be the one to tell him. Just thought I'd let you know that you're not alone.

The only thing that worked for me was eating less carbs/fats and preventing constipation. I also found that smoking and drinking caused a my symptoms to get worse. To prevent constipation I drink tons of water and force myself to exercise in order to stay regular. It works but you really have to stick to your diet. I eat eggs, chicken, lean steak vegetables, and small amounts of brown rice and whole grain oatmeal.

I sorry for all of you. I speaka English no good. But my anus crack have the smell of a Limburger cheese. This not good for social life. I feel like a stink turd. I take a wash very often and scrub it. I buy a water hose to squirts up there to, but the smell return and assault the nostrils of my nose. My girlfriend nose have also been assaulted. She think I may have a turd leak and should try a cork of some type. Not sure if I ever hear of a cork for the butt. I also afeared that the cork might pop out and make noise if gas under pressure. Also what if the cork loses inside the anus. Any thoughts would be help. Thank you muchly.

First thing I would do is get you some "Dieters Delight" tea... I did this 25 years ago and soooo much bacteria laden mucus came out of me that it makes horror movies seem like a comedy! SERIOUSLY! Its like $6 a box... drink maybe 3-4 glasses if its really bad... You will blow the bolts off the toilet in 2-4 hours and give birth to an alien substance that looks similar to a tape worm or something. Just google "colon cleanse photos" and you can see what I'm talking about. Get that shit out of you, and you will be cured! Don't bother with expensive colon cleansers tho... Just use the tea, and if you feel inclined to boost its effectiveness feel free to mix it with some fiber. The tea tastes great, so be careful not to over do it, and STAY NEAR A TOILET FOR 24 HOURS!:)

Man, this smell sucks. I don't know what causes it, but I had this smell about this time of year last year, and it just went away in the summer, when I realized that it was part of me. Then I realized that most of the time then I didn't even smell. But, now I have it again, starting a couple of days ago. I don't know what caused it, but I have some ideas. I think that it might have been caused by thanksgiving, as my diet changed slightly. I reverted my diet back to normal though, so I don't think that could have caused it, but I may be wrong. My diet is usually steak, chips, and pizza, and I haven't had this problem recently until now. Maybe it's possible that the cold is making my arsehole too tight, until it dies from exhaustion and loosens. Or maybe it's stress. I really don't know. I shower every morning and I wipe until clean every afternoon when I poop. This doesn't make sense to me, and people are starting to notice that I smell again. I've noticed that my crap is now yellow and in one piece, if that helps. PLEASE HELP ME! I lost friends and I'm am much more depressed now that I know it is coming from me again. I know that it is coming from me because whenever I go into a room, people always say it smells like "dookie, but just not as strong." or that "someone smells like butt.". I had my family unconsciously confirm this, by saying that I need stronger deodorant. My deodorant is strong and I cover my entire torso with it every morning. My little brother told me I smell like poop, and I'm sure that the rest of the family has smelled this in the recent past. I need a cure. I feel like I'm a coward, torn from society, afraid to be indoors with people. I need help.

Sincerely,
Anonymous 13 year old coward

This has ruined my life. I'm always depressed , I can't stand in class for more then 30 min. I have 128 absences.. First semester hasn't even ended yet. I got a call to work at my favriot store. It has been only 1 week of me working part time and I can already get the vibe that I smell. Just now when I typed. "I smell" that brings me to tears. My appearance is one of the most important things to me, I used to get close to people, it kills me to say I can't anymore. When I was in 9th grade I knew everyone, everyone liked me, I loved school, I loved socializing and helping others . End of 10th grade it all started to go downhill. gassy, smelly, growling tummy you know the rest. Now I'm in 11th grade and I don't know how much more I can take., ofcourse I'm not considering suicide , but dropping out of school , locking my self in my room sounds like a good option . I know some of you have had to deal with this evil thing for much longer , but this is just something I can't deal with. Im only 17, I don't deserve this, I want to be happy .

My son's Scoutmaster was diagnosed with h. pylori and even the meds hurt his stomach. He was in almost unbearable pain for days on end. He finally tried my 7-Day Challenge and was pain-free after JUST ONE MEAL. Check the website in my profile and try my free 7-Day Challenge to see what Regenerative Eating can do for your stank-ass odor problems.

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

You could try using nullo, it's an internal deoderant in pill form that works from the inside out and can be quite beneficial to your health :)

http://www.nullo.com/about-nullo.html

worth a shot if anything else and is very inexpensive, if it doesn't work then you haven't lost out, if it does work then it could be a simple way of sorting out a problem a lot of you have had for years :)

it can take up to 2 weeks to take effect.

Anyone who's tried it should post their results on the forum :)

"Nullo helps diminish body odors, such as bad breath (halitosis), foot odor, underarm odor (arm pits) and genital odor and also odor from perspiration, menstruation,flatulence or incontinence."

"When taken as part of your regular diet and daily hygiene regimen Nullo will neutralize body odors.
Nullo is also used to reduce odor arising from surgical procedures such as colostomy, ileostomy, gastric bypass, lap band, and other bariatric procedures."

Hopefully it will solve a lot of peoples problems on here, i hope so sounds like a horrible thing to suffer with.

And also try not to listen to the haters, they don't know what your suffering with, if they ever get it they will regret making fun out of you.

Best of luck :)

I too suffered this, and I think the best thing's to do is first off, RELAX!! It's plain to see we aren't the only ones in this boat. I strongly think a great deal of it is in our own heads, when we worry about it, it is mirrored back in others reactions to what we are having thoughts about. Think of it this way, if the philosophy is that our world is our own perception, maybe we are the cause of it. Our thoughts are NOT always the FACTS.

I've had many surgeries on my intestines and been through a great deal of drug and alcohol addiction, which lead to the break down of my intestinal health. It wasn't till I hit hard drugs that it really showed. Trying to make medical sense of it, the drugs reduced my immune system and healthy bacteria in my upper and lower intestines.

You are what you eat, so it must contribute to our health in all aspects. A body that doesn't stay healthy is bound to rot out and decay. You don't take care of yourself vitamin wise, you lack the ability to have the building blocks to function properly, no?

Where I notice it most is in my diet and amounts of foods I eat. In one of my surgeries they removed the valve that stops the back flow of waste and toxins between the large colon and small intestines. I found that the smell fluctuated with the bulk of what I had to eat as well as "regularity" & stool size. If small, smell more, if normal, no smell. Research your dietary differences and where you can make your changes, from what is deemed healthy and what you lack. Stay away from alcohol, period. Stay away from foods that are well processed and cured. The harder to break down and digest, with a less than healthy set of guts, something is bound to come out or hang around that smells.

The best I can suggest is relax, work with your doctor, take comfort your not alone. Think of it this way, Egyptians held a dung beatle in highest regard. Skunks have an odor. Elephants have an odor. You never know, our smell may be evidence of a different genetic makeup or evolution that will sustain us over the average non smelly person, right? Hold hope. Stay clean, powder your butt after you shower. Take baking soda baths, epsom salt baths. RELAX! When you are in a situation that gets your heart and stress up, your blood pumps like a mofo, and goes everywhere. In stress situations, your unconsciously going to squeeze your guts and tense up. I found that when I worried about it, it was worse, when I didn't care but knew I was healthy and doing my best, owning and accepting it just may be a part of me, no one batted an eye.

Bottom line, get healthy, active, build up your body inside out, keep your diet clean, no booze and drugs, take your vitamins and add the ones that help in building and repair. Just keep doing your best and part to fix yourself. Don't beat yourself up and hide yourself away. You have one life to live and you must make the best of bad situations. Life is just too damn short to worry and sweat this small stuff. I'm sure all of you would be the kindest people and have hearts of gold as opposed to "normal" people that have no "bad" things. We are humans and animals. Some animals smell more than others, and that's just part of life. Just do your best, stay healthy and live life to your potential. Love yourself, if you don't, no one else will.

my ass smells doc said i had sentinel pile or scar tissue from an injury due to hard stools and there's nothing that can be done because thats the scar tissue thats already there. anyways i dont know what i can use to take away the smell from that ive tried many different kinds of soap and things and nothing works. :(

Hate to say this but all of the stuff being said on here is true. Same problem here. Doctor said I have H. Pylori. She put me on a 2 week regimen of antibiotics. Tell your doctor to test you for H. pylori. Get your life back. Its bacteria thats in your stomach, slows down your digestive system. It then feeds on undigested food which gives off horrible gas. It doesnt go away on its own. Finish all of the medicine even when the sewage smell leaves. To totally eradicate the bacteria or it will become resistant to the antibiotics. Go to the doctor because it can cause stomach cancer if left untreated.

I too smell like crap. I work out, eat healthy foods (apples, chicken, beans *sometimes*, bananas, milk,etc.), work out a lot, and take one shower a day. But when I go smell my breeches and undergarment it smells like ass. And after gym class I smell like I crawled out of a outhouse. I am 17 and this problem started around 12 if I remember correctly. I am skinny with medium sized muscles and yet I still smell. I used to live in a shit hole of a house but moved out but the problem remained. It feels like there is something up the *chute* but I don't wanna stick my finger up there. My social life is completely destroyed and my girlfriend broke up with me because of it. I have no clue what to do, and most of the suggested stuff doesn't seem to work, when some research is done on it.

To everyone having this problem, there is a temporary cure. Baking Soda. Arm&Hammer. Go buy some. Let it refrigerate. Then shower. Rub it in your crack. Around your crack etc. wash it off. Repeat this step 3 times. The smell will be gone all day. Its more of a psychological thing. So after you notice the smell is gone, don't think about it.
Works for me 100% Effective. If this helped, reply back, "JORDAN"

All of you guys are amazing. I myself use to go out with friends, sit next to girls and socialize. But now, I just sit at home in my room. I hate going places with my mum or brothers because I will start to reek of poop. I recently discovered it is in fact a big deal on the foods you consume. When I eat pork, or meat. I smell poop. If I use ketchup, its a sweet disgusting smell. Very similar to trash.. I have become use to it, its my body I smell it everyday. But then I start to wonder what do others smell? If anyone has any answers or help please post them.== I too have thought suicide. But then I realized there is more things to live for than yourself. Thank you to everyone with positive answers.

I'm positive that a lot of people commenting here have psychological disorders that cause them to hallucinate smells. Your brain can fool you smell-wise. Like for instance my friend has a really stinky old dog that pisses on itself when it sleeps and suffers from chronic ear infections. The combination of the piss and the infection creates a godawful smell which is so strong I cannot even begin to describe it. If I get a real good whiff of it, I can smellucinate it from time to time for days afterwards, even though logic tells me the dog is nowhere near me. I remember the first time I tasted and smelled an unwashed pussy, I could not get the taste and the smell out of me for weeks. Every time I ate something, it would combine with the pussy taste. And then you start obsessing over it and convincing yourself that the smell is real. I'm not saying that's what's going on with everyone here, but definitely a few of you.

Loser! I'm Gail and just reading that you have an odor in your ass I won't hang out with you. I will recommend others girl to not hang out with you, even if you find the cure of your badly-wiped ass. Because that's all this is- YOU DON'T WIPE YOUR ASS WELL. Men...

It's not as simple as not wiping the ass for some people. They have something else going on such as hemorrhoids, encopresis, fissures, candida, tmau or other problems. No one is a loser here for having a problem they can't help.

Hi. Guy from UK here. First of all don't give up. We all have the same medical condition so you are not alone! Remember us all on here when someone is making fun at you. It is best that you tell someone about it if you can. Tell someone who you know will be understanding! Maybe tell your best friend that you stink for some reason and can they smell you. Try and laugh with them about it but say it is getting you down!! Get them to say if they can smell you anytime.
I'm pretty sure as someone posted I have Descending Perineum Syndrome. I don't fully empty my bowel so poo is stuck just inside the anus. That's why a lot of us have to wipe for ages! After I have done a poo and wiped myself I have stuck a finger up my bum and can feel poo just inside my anus. No wonder a poo smell comes out with poo stuck inside just behind the anus in the rectum!!!! Also it then makes me sweat down there. With me the smell gets worse when I am anxious or stressed out for instance when I am going out with friends or people get too close to me. Mine started when I was about 17. I remember going for a poo and just couldn’t get all the poo out and from then on I feel like I never have fully emptied.
Doing research I found on http://www.funadvice.com/q/i_smell_bad I found this posting on it about this guy:
“Dr sent me to a psychiatrist who then confirmed this smell is anxiety related because this smell got worse when I was around people ....so he decided to try me with 50mg of sertraline to see if it helped ...well what difference I felt I could go out without having to rush home. I am now smell free just after 6 months on these tablets I'm looking to go back to work after 10 years and do my driving lessons I can't believe for 10 years my illness was all down to anxiety.”
I don’t really want to go on Sertraline so I thought about herbal tablets that calm you down. I have ordered off ebay Valerian Root tablets and St Johns Wort tablets. I’m also going to order Passion flower tablets. Going to try these out and I’ll let you all know if they help. It’s not a cure but if they can make me relaxed and keep stress and anxiety levels down then the smell should be controlled. I’ve tried Nullo tablets and also Solaray Chlorophyll tablets. Both are internal deodorant tablets. Both bought off ebay but Solaray are cheaper and dispatched in the UK. I would say they did help and are safe to use although they make your poo green. I am going to do some more research on Descending Perineum Syndrome then see my doctor again. I am now 39 and have been to the doctors many times but they do not understand enough about it so I need all the information I can gather to present to them for them to listen to me!
I have trained myself to poo in the morning before I go to work. My routine is I poo in the morning and shower. While in the shower I stick my finger up my bum to push back the poo and rectum and then wash my anus. After I have dried myself I wipe to see if there is any poo on toilet paper. Sometimes none, sometimes a few wipes and it is clean. I don’t eat foods that will make me fart only if I know I am not going out socialising. Coffee definitely brings on my smell so I cut coffee out as much as I can and just have it at weekends if I’m not socialising. I can get through the day without smelling like this. Drink water on its own, this really does help too. For the sweating I bought Driclor a roll on deodorant. Put it on at night along your arse crack and around the anus and bum cheeks but not on the anus. It will sting a bit but bear with it. Wash it off in the morning. It lasts for months so I only have to apply it twice a year! I have had this for 22 years so I know the poo smell can be controlled so don’t give up. Attack it from all sides. Confront those who poke fun at you. Say you have a medical problem and IBS so please do not make comments. Approach them individually and say it nicely at first. You will find that most are embarrassed and will leave you alone. My motto is “Whatever it Takes”. I will do Whatever it takes to beat this poo smell. I will do Whatever it takes to live a normal life and Whatever it takes to find out what is causing this smell and to be cured from it!! Good luck people
