rectal 'weeping'
My anus seems to be smellier than normal. The recal region is just a little moist. I find that I need to shower a couple of times a day to make sure that my anus is clean to avoid the smell.

Dear Jeremy
You may have eczema in the area or your anal valve is not closing properly due to a hemorroid. Please let your GP have a look - I know it is embarassing but it is SO treatable. We are used at looking at all kinds of things so it does not really bother us anymore!
