The Shit Volcano asks:

I used to have a major problem when I was younger with what I call a "million wiper". I think you know what I'm talking about. You wipe and you wipe and you just can't seem to get clean. Finally, after using half a roll of toilet paper, three million wet wipes, and washing your bung hole out in the sink, you leave with a sore, itchy ass. This went on for years until one day about two years ago when it suddenly stopped cold. What causes million wipers in the first place? And why would they suddenly stop and start happening at random? Note: I stopped eating red meat two years ago because of iron toxicity. (If I spelled it right!) Maybe this had something to do with it but I don't know how.





Hi Shit Volcano!

Your instincts are, as always, right on. The major cause of sticky poo and thus the need to wipe more is grease and fats in the poo. This is probably well documented somewhere, but frankly I don't have the time to look into it.

Curiously enough though, if you lean forward when pinching it off, you may notice very little if anything to wipe.

Thanks for asking!

Got a question for her?

I used to have a normal poop when I was a kid. I would wipe only once or two at most. Now it is sticky for some reason. It really helps using paper soaked with water and then using dry paper.

Thanks for the thread all.
I thinks it just therapeutic to read all the comments about MWS and even better to take a lighthearted attitude. Its the best laugh I've had in weeks!
Like most of the other posts I done the works in terms of doctors etc. Had a "top & tail" as the GI doctors call it - Colonoscopy/gastroscopy. Although it seemed a good idea at the time , nothing showed up that could explain the IBS symptoms etc. I dont think I even told the doctor about brown sticky crap that takes ages to clean up.
I seem to alternate between hard pellets (rabbit poo) and then a long sticky brown job which takes forever to come out. Best method I've worked out is to take time, bend forward (like a squat position), scoop initially rather than wipe, and to wet TP with either water or use wipes (thank god for babies).
How to cure it- I just about given up. Tried everything. Drank water (just pissed it out), tried extra fibre (not sure as when you make bricks you add straw to clay - so that cant be good), tried probiotics (yakult->probiotics tablets). Its definitely diet related but even writing up a diet diary doesn't work because some foods take longer transit times than others.
Sugar malabsorption- completed sugar intolerance (hydrogen breath testing) and maybe borderline fructose intolerance- so minimise apples, onions, honey and also cereals (fructans- chain fructose molecules). Trouble is - these foods are the best for fibre.
I'm thinking now maybe a dairy intolerance( probably casein more than lactose) as lactose free milk doesnt help. Also now trying smaller meals at night, chewing more and not mixing carbs with protein. Wish me luck.

Just out of curiousity, how well does everyone here CHEW their food? I noticed most of my digestive problems cropped up around the time I was shoveling lunch down in my 20 minute lunch breaks in middle and high school.

Reading these posts made me laugh until I had tears.

I think internal hemorrhoids can make this problem worse, but I think the consistency of the poo is the biggest cause. I guess that comes down to either medical problems or diet.

By the way, I spent two weeks in Nepal, a nation that is pretty much BYOTP (bring your own toilet paper). Only thing worse than being a million wiper is having to keep a two week supply of TP with you as you travel. Hope ya got big pockets..

OK, this is my first post and I'm going to comment on the first post.

Bullshit!!!!!!!!!

It ain't you diet that gives you pasty shit for years at a time and them it goes away and comes back. It ain't fiber either.

If you look up rosacia on google you will get about a zillion hits and every damn one of them will tell you the cause of rosacia is unknown. Once again,

Bullshit!!!!!!!!

A couple of researchers in LA found the cause back in 2007 and it was pretty interesting. I suspect that pasty ass syndrome is caused by some combination of protiens, enzymes, etc, etc, etc not working right in the intestines, gall bladder, liver, etc, etc, etc, just like the weird fluke that causes rosacia.

Horse shit on all of this crap about diet and fiber and red meat and water consumption. I have had this problem on more than off most of my life and I have tried every goddamn thing conceivable to mankind and it just stops when it wants to with absolutely no change whatsoever to my diet or lifestyle.

So what is the answer, I don't know but I do know that until someone finds out we should be working on how better to cope with it instead of bullshitting each other about fiber intake. I personally have a setup in my shower stall to wash my ass everytime I crap. Its like a industrial bidet. Its the only way I can crap and not leak like a goddamn upside down open tube of toothpaste all day long. It just don't work away from home and I have found "nothing" that does. The ass washers on the 40 billion dollar toilets for your home don't cut it.

Anybody want to talk about this seriously? Because I for one am pissed about it and want to goddamn know why I can't shit a normal turd while we land spacecraft on other planets.

Thanks for listening,

pastyass out.

I can really relate to you trying everything but it just ain't diet related or people would have found what works for them by now, and we just haven't. And I believe it is because it is related to something else that has nothing or very little to do with diet. Some biological tryfecta that just gets pushed aside by the medical community due to lack of interest/funding and is easier dumped on the usual causes; IBS (its bull shit)fiber, diet, water intake, etc.

So I know everyone is different, but I have found a perfect solution for myself-- ALL BRAN BRAN BUDS by Kellogs. It's the only one that has psyllium

not any other type of all bran
not any other fiber cereal
not a powdered fiber supplement
not straight psyllium

NONE of those did the trick

BUT All Bran BRAN BUDS has!!

i add ground flax on it for fun-- these days with Almond Milk, raisins and some other tastier cereal to make it palatable--

when i eat that cereal a few times a week, my shits go from Million Wipers (itchy, bloody asshole, wasted time) to ZERO wipes, or maybe one wipe.

it's a longshot maybe, but worth it-- please try!!!!!

I wonder if there are so many people that share this affliction why on earth do doctor's not acknowledge this at all? YOu mean to tell me that none of them share this million wipes a day either? I find it very hard to believe. I go through this every time i poop. There's nothing more romantic either when your partner wants to roll around in the sac, and you have to run to the bathroom to make sure there isn't any trace amount of poo hanging out!!

Doctors Diaticians' should comment more, keep slowly changing your diet by omitting the ones you feel is causing it. iron does make it sticky= rubbing the sides of both your thighs near your Anus can help one to pass their excreta. keep pulling your fingers up on the sides of your hips and you will soon feel the excreta moving on and out. its not the full answer but it helps and as well try and relax sorry about the spelling as i don't care about spelling as long as you under stand jb

I have been dealing with this garbage for ages now and finally Googled it and it directed me here! It's nice to know I'm not alone, although I'm sorry for all of you who deal with this too.

I first attempt to get as much residue off with paper (Angel Soft is nice as it has those raised patterns that might help to get a little more off), and then use the Cottonelle wet wipes. Sometimes I go through half a bag, so I stock up in bulk. The last two BMs I had were rough, and I wound up having to wipe way too much and now the area is a little dry and itchy. I don't have the problem with recurrences and things seeping out, but all I'm left with is a clean, dry, itchy, and sometimes bloody rear.

The only saving grace is I don't go every day. That's always been my natural pattern for the most part, unless I'm having IBS flareups.

I'm going to try the enema bag to wash around there and maybe start taking my Citrucel fiber capsules again.

I also have hemmorhoidal anti-itch cream on the way from drugstore.com because I'm too embarrassed to buy it at the store.

I'm seriously thinking about asking my doctor about this. It's embarrassing and she will probably want to laugh, but maybe she'll have some answers.

I also have the million wiper problem but I retain hope because every once in a while I have a "Ghost Poop." A "Ghost Poop" is when you feel the poop and you hear the poop but when you wipe, nothing is there, and when you look in the toilet it's empty because your poop is a Ghost Poop.

I'm working towards making all of my poops Ghost Poops and will surely keep you posted on my progress. It's rare, but I'll be documenting the foods and circumstances surrounding this mysterious occurrence so that we may further explore this phenomena and hopefully one day integrate the Ghost Poop into our daily lives.

Some of my other favorite poops are the "Lincoln Log" and the "Fraternal Twins".

I'm 35 years old and have had the sticky-poo problem my entire life. I actually thought I was alone and there must not be anyone that shares the same affliction as me. Those that have this problem know exactly what I'm talking about. It wasn't until about 2 months ago that I searched on-line and found tons of other people that relate. From reading all the different remedies, I decided to try Metamucil (Psyllium Husk) along with cutting down on my proteins and breads and see how it worked. 2 months later and it seems to be working really, really well. I'm not completely sure which change solved the problem or if it's a combination of the two. If I slack-off my diet (normally over the weekend) eating pizza and not drinking my Metamucil, I'll almost definitely end up with the good-ol sticky poop problem on Monday or Tuesday. My biggest recommendation to someone that has this problem and doesn't know where to start, is to try the Metamucil for a few days and see what happens. I dose between 1 to 2 tablespoons per day (usually 1) My MSW (million-shit-wipes) have been turned into 1, 2 or 3 wipes max on a majority of my bathroom visits...good luck!

Tears...I just read your comment and I totally relate. Seriously, I don't know if it'll work for you for sure, but go get some Metamucil (Psyllium Husk) and drink at least a couple tablespoons (well-rounded per day) After 35 years of having the same problem it worked for me. Remember to drink butt-loads of water with the Psyllium!

I too Am a million time wiper... I have had this problem for years! My only solution is getting as much as possible and the showering... If your not at home I have another solution that at least helps until you can get home to shower! I call it "the manpon" all you do is clean up as much as possible and then you take some toiletpaper, if it's double layer I use 4 sheets if it's the cheap single layer you may have to use more but you fold it in Half where it becomes two sheets and then fold it in half one more time thus making it a half sheet... And you stick that between your buttcheecks... This method does work as I have used it for years... I do suggest you take it out before you shower however... I have a manpon in as we speak and I don't have racing stripes when I take offs my pants!

some of these posts crack me up. others frighten me (like the guy sticking his hand in the toilet to pick his poos off the side of the toilet bowl?)

but i also suffer occasionally from wet, sloppy kaka-poopoo-doodoo syndrome, and have yet to legitimately attribute it to my diet (at least to the exclusion of anything else).

one thing i CAN say is that i think it has a little more to do with the regularity of your shits. if you go everyday, your crap will be harder, darker and less broken down than shit that has been sitting in your system for several days. when crap sits in your intestines for several days, the enzymes in your intestinal linings break down the food way more than if the food passes quickly through your system. and when it's broken down a lot, shit turns lighter and lighter, softer and softer, and slimier and slimier. this is when you get nasty wipes.

the solution? eat foods that will make you shit more often (so, in a way, yes, the solution does have to do with your diet, but it's a relatively indirect correlation because the real answer lies in the frequency with which you shit). so, eat bran, lots of fruit, dark green vegetables like spinach and kale, oatmeal, and even coffee will help. you can go so far as to take laxatives but by and large, natural food is always better.

Have been having this horrible problem for over 2 years now. Have tried so many different things. My ass always feels either swollen or raw from wiping so much. I will be going to the 3rd doctor to check me out in a couple of days. I am so jealous of people that can just take a crap and be done with it. I feel like its gotta be some physical fuck up with the way the anorectal areas is, and not so much with the diet, cuz come on guys diet really? People be eatin shit everywhere and I gaurantee not everyone suffers from this. I will post if there is a miracle breakthrough.

Hello all,

I saw the above comment about Candida being the cause of this, and I must say - it is DEFINITELY true for me. I stopped all sugar and started taking Candax, and sure enough - pinchin' perfect ones all day long (some other annoying symptoms are subsiding as well).

I feel so relieved to be rid of this awful affliction. I had to self diagnose because most doctors are just retarded. IBS is such a "lazy doctors" diagnosis.

Anyhow, yes. Candida. Look it up.

AMEN, pastyass! Seriously! I have to run off to the toilet throughout the day myself just to wipe and it SUCKS! It doesn't matter if I eat nothing but bran all day either. It sucks and it's horrible. If I have a date with someone I actually douche just to be safe. Wish I had a shower like yours or a bidet.

I have a real problem, my toilet, nor any other toilet, can handle by shits. Why can't they make a toilet that can handle a real man's shit. Again, I'm talking about a man's shit, not a woman's, not a quasi male's dump, but a real alpha male's shit. A shit so tough, huge and vile that the gods take notice.

My shit always gets stuck somewhere in the shit pipes (the pipes that carry my shit outside).

I've wrote many companies in regards to this, claiming that there is a lot of money to be made in the design/production of 'super industrial toilets'. Non have returned my mails or calls, probably because they are ran by women or pussies that have no idea how immovable a real mans shit can be.

It's time to change, we have a right to shit in confidence, to be real men, and read our news papers and hardware store catalogs while we produce 'man logs'

Come on men, join me. Get involved, the shit revolution is at hand!

Regards.

One of the tricks but not solutions I've found is to just take a loperamide (Immodium) pill or two here and there. My poop is especially sticky if I'm going around twice a day, and the Immodium slows down the GI track the same way opiates do with little adverse effects. I don't do this often, maybe once every 2 months or so, but it allows everything more time to dry up. It's been especially useful when I've had to poop and wipe so frequently that my anus gets scratched and irritated. The loperamide at least gives me a day or two of rest here and there. Obviously taking it more than a day or so in a row is intentional constipation and a bad thing.

I am finally firm again...no more sticky pooh syndrome!

Man, after reading countless post from SPS sufferers I was determined to end the million wipe frustration.

A common thread was everyone seemed to be in good shape, eating a healthy diet, and hygienically sound...same as me.

I went through my diet...Banana every morning, work out, non-fat greek yogurt w/berries & granola. Lean meat sandwich for lunch w/a salad(non-fat dressing) followed by a reasonable dinner. What could cause the SPS?

So I tried some fiber drinks...Metamucil Fiber Supplement Powder and the like...no change, Damn the Sticky Poop Syndrome!

Finally, after a Saturday binge of drinking and bar food, Sunday I had a single wiper! What the F! Bad diet and booze cure this damn plight? Monday morning comes and I go off to work...have my banana, coffee, BM(clean), and I get my non-fat greek yogurt out and EUREEEEEEKA! That's it, I missed my greek yogurt over the weekend and the SPS went away.

It's been several weeks since I have had any greek yogurt and the disgusting million wiper has not resurface.

Friends, greek yogurt causes sticky poop syndrome! (In my opinion, of course.)

You are welcome:)

I am going to suggest that it is due to oily foods, in particularly meat. Mine is at its worst after eating meat pies and working (therefore eating) at a fast food store over the last few days. I have used nearly a whole roll after just two shits. Have you ever tried to wipe up an oily surface with just dry toilet paper? Well it is the same for your asshole.

I have had this problem for years and while I have not found a solution to it, I have found an inexpensive way to make it a non-issue. There is a device called a Biffy which easily attaches to your toilet in 5 minutes. It costs about a 100 dollars from Biffy.com. It has a little lever that swings the arm under you after you go. It sprays a powerful jet of water (adjustable) that can clean the outside and the inside if you desire. Trust me you will not have this problem another day if you get one of these. I know this sounds strange but it has been life changing! Check out their website. You will wonder how you lived without it.

Hey guys.....
I think I might have found a reason for some of our distress. Have any of you guys ever wondered if this affliction is the consequence of fluoride in our water and oral hygiene products? I think there's a decent chance this at least has a hand in this matter.

Also, has anyone tried juicing to alleviate this issue? I recommend you guys watch "Fat Sick & Nearly Dead" on Netflix. Also might find "Food Matters" very interesting. Finally, I think something like the Gerson Therapy could wash away what ever is doing this to us. Let me know what you guys think.

Hey guys, I've got the same problem. Wiping my ass is like trying to rid a peanut butter jar of all its peanut butter. It's a long and drawn out process and I'm sick of it.

Well for Goodness Sake, surely this can be resolved!

For starter's half the problem has been wiping too friggin much. You wipe too much and you irritate it and it reacts by discharging from inside the gland. There are quite a few reasons why it happens and I know it's embarrassing as hell.
Skid marks on the underwear, smell, and are uncomfortable.

I haven't resolved it but in my case I believe it is because of irritated hemorrhoids following large doses of codeine administered after surgery in my 20's.

My solution rather than using toilet paper wadding is the following:

Go the the drugstore and buy a product called "WITCH HAZEL". This is an all natural product and can be used as a skin cleanser. A cotton ball soaked in strong witch hazel can reduce swelling and can relieve the pain of hemorrhoids. After I use and dispose of the first swab I lightly soak a second swab and leave it in place. It keeps the ass protected from leakage (manpon if you like) eases any burning or itching and generally improves your life once you get used to the feeling something is stuck there. Get to a toilet later in the day and flush it's gone. I generally find, after a couple of hours, no need for anything else until next time.

Give it a shot fellas - hope it works for you too !!!

Do you have to take God's name in vain to make a comment?

____________________________________

Moderators comment,

I can only assume that this post was made in reply to one several comments up in which the words "God damn it" were used. I don't know why Drupal posted it way down here. But anyway let me explain.

I was told by a college Political Science teacher that saying "God Damn It" is not taking God's name in vain. The speaker is merely making a plea to God to do something that the speaker himself cannot do, it's like a prayer of sorts.

If you owe someone money and you tell them that, with God as your witness, you will pay them back on a certain day and secretly you have absolutely no plans of doing so, then you have taken God's name in vain. This teacher by the way had duel doctorates and one was in divinity.

I have had this million wiper problem and bad wind for the best part of seven years. It really started when I ate tinned curry for the first time in 2005. My diet got progressively worse, curry, pizza, chicken burgers almost every night, for seven years straight. Very little to no vegetables or goodness, also I only ever ate one or two big meals a day, no breakfast.

At the beginning of this year I had enough of using an entire toilet roll every time, and wetting it so I could loosen and clean more effectively. I went to the doctors and explained. He provided Normocol, fiber sachets, and after I began to take them I noticed that all they do is firm up the actual stool but have little to no effect on the amount of wiping or flatulence.

After about four months there was little improvement so I went back to the doctor's and he booked me in for a sigmoidoscopy as he couldn't understand the excessive wiping/loose motions if my stools were "firm". I got so scared and worked up that I cancelled my appointment.

I forced myself into eating healthy cereal for breakfast, something light for lunch, and no eating late at night for the first time in years. I have cut out all forms of curry, chicken burgers, deep fried food etc. I have started drinking lots of water and cutting out gassy fizzy drinks i.e Coke.

Side note: I have also cut down on vinegar as I used to use buckets of the stuff and I think it may be a very irritable substance or at least one that doesn't agree with me.

I am pleased to announce that there has been nothing but improvement since I have started this new diet. After experiencing pain in my abdomen for the first week, probably my body adjusting, I can honestly say that it is working for me. Maybe ten wipes at the most with a little water because I'm so used to wiping that way.

UP TO NOW IT IS WORKING FOR ME My case was quite severe at one stage so to show such marked improvement in the space of ONE WEEK is nothing short of remarkable. I was convinced that it wasn't my diet, that I was dying or had some sort of colonic disorder but being booked in for a sigmoidoscopy scared me into changing my diet drastically.

I will keep you all posted and would appreciate your thoughts on my scenario.

Good Luck

For me, it's either chocolate or peanut butter, cause when I wipe, it's like I'm trying to wipe melted peanut butter chocolate off my ass. By the time I'm finished the whole roll of toilet paper is gone. Damn you, million wipers!

This is a frustrating problem. I had this problem for about six months. I started reading about the pasty poop and the problem was lack of fiber. I started on a teaspoon of psyllium husk (konsyl, Metamucil) mixed with orange juice,8 ounces, and followed up with 16 oz of water.

The next morning my bowel movement was solid with only two wipes! I was elated. I solved the million wipe problem. I also take probiotics to replace the intestinal flora. This helps enormously with gas and promotes regularity.

Stay away from junk food or limit it. Once a week it's okay. The soda is no good due to the carbonation, it gives you gas. Drink water. At least a quart a day if not more. The water creates the "bulk" when you take the fiber. It needs the water to form a healthy bowel movement. Trust me, I know.

I was the classic million wiper before I found this article. Hairy ass, sticky poo, I would wipe till kingdom come and still end up with poo stains in the shorts.

Then I found Psyllium Husk fiber pills. I take them twice a day. The first sign of things taking a turn for the better were about 3 incredi-craps. Nice massive dumps that held together like I haven't had in years. Now for a solid week (no pun intended) I've been pinching off normal size loaves with only one or two wipes.

Many thanks to all that contributed to this comment section!

So relieved to hear about more people having the same problems. I have had this for seven years straight and at times it frustrates me more than one can imagine! I can remember two times in those seven years where there has been significant improvement.

A couple of months ago I read on the IBS-forums about psyllium husk. I bought the powder version, and for about 2-3 days toilet time was like heaven!

Just before Christmas 2012 I got food poisoning. After being sick(diarrhea and throwing up) for five days straight, my BM's were 100% perfect! it lasted for maybe three days, and the feeling was like none other!

I have also been experimenting with a lot of different diets. High fiber, low fiber, high water intake, low on the red meat, more salads etc. Could it all be in our heads? I have been low and have light depression at times, could this be a cause? Lately, my low periods have been caused by this problem, so it becomes a big bad circle. Hoping to discuss this further with you people with the same problem! At the moment I will try the psyllium husk-tablets from iHerb combined with lots of water and exercise, and a low carb-intake, to see if this helps.
