Hello doctor,

Since last few days whenever I eat any spicy food or chicken, after passing stools, I am feeling a bit of burning sensation for five minutes. After that, it goes away. That too in a week I feel 1 to 2 times. Surrounding the anus also while washing sometimes I am feeling a burning sensation. I do not have any other problem of difficulty in passing the stools and it is regular and clear. I request you to suggest some medication. and I have also stopped eating spicy food.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Intake of spicy food may cause burning sensation and irritation of anal mucosa which may lead to a burning pain during defecation. It is due to the spiciness of the food. You may try yogurt, cucumber, tender coconut water, probiotic capsules, buttermilk. Use tablet Nexium before breakfast for one week. Avoid spicy food intake. If symptoms do not improve, please consult a physician or post me a query.
