Youve gone through every roll of toilet paper in your house. The flushing toilet is waking up the neighbors. Youre barely holding your sh*t together, literally. And to quote Ellie Goulding, youre gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

Diarrhea is defined as loose, watery stools that happen three or more times a day. While diarrhea can affect people in different ways (and doesnt always burn), you may have more bowel movements than usual and it will be urgent when you need to go.

The burning or itching in #UrAnus that accompanies your diarrhea may seem alarming, but the good news is that its usually not an emergency. (However, if the pain is extreme or if you see blood, see a doctor!)

Otherwise, your poo situation will most likely improve within a few hours or a few days, depending on what caused this sorry state of affairs. In the meantime, there are home remedies to ease your anus. The most important thing you can do is drink water.

If youre wondering why your ass is on fire, the simple reason is because somethings gone awry in your digestive system. A common reason for diarrhea is that your intestines are not absorbing enough fluid from your bodys waste and its coming out the other end.

Its easy to forget that theres a whole food journey from first chew to number 2. At least it is when things are running like normal.

What is normal? Food enters your system and a variety of acids and digestive enzymes get to work as soon as food touches saliva.

Your mucosa lines the length of your digestive system and contains tiny glands that produce digestive juices to help break down food. Bile, a fat-dissolving digestive juice produced by your liver, is added to the mixture to help your body finish absorbing nutrients.

By the time food passes through the small intestine, most digestive juices should be neutralized. Food becomes feces badda bing, badda boom: normal digestion.

If foods arent broken down enough, then the acids, enzymes, and bile can damage tissue and cause burning sensations as food speeds through the end of the digestion process.

Hormone and nerve regulators that control the process can be triggered to increase the force of food movement. Thats why you may feel your muscles contract and signal that you cant wait to go to the bathroom.

There are a variety of culprits that could trigger diarrhea:

If you have a loving relationship with spicy foods, beware. Capsaicin, a chemical compound in foods like hot peppers, might cause your digestive system to mutiny on the poop deck.

Skin contact with capsaicin can cause burning, and its even asthma-inducing for some people. So its no wonder that this little ingredient can trigger the runs.

Remember, diarrhea happens when waste speeds out of your digestive system ahead of schedule. That means the capsaicin youve consumed in a spicy food might leave the body before breaking down properly. This can cause a burning sensation around your anus.

You might be sensitive to spicy foods if the following things happen after you eat something with capsaicin:

If you think spicy foods are causing your burning diarrhea, keep a food diary, note symptoms and episodes, and then cut out the ones that burn all the way down and out. Sadly, the best solution may be to limit intake or cut them out completely.

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in or around your anus. If you stressed out your bum hole lately, the strain may have caused the veins to swell. Nothing further irritates hemorrhoids like a bout of diarrhea. Their revenge: heavy fire.

Here are a couple of other signs that youve got hemorrhoids:

Bleeding yes, from your butt can be a pretty disturbing symptom of hemorrhoids, but theres no need to panic.

If you see a little bit of fresh blood on your toilet paper after you wipe, stay calm. But if there is a lot of blood, or the blood is darker and mixed in with your stool, definitely get set an appointment with your healthcare provider ASAP!

Hemorrhoids can heal on their own, but you can speed up the process and reduce the discomfort. As anyone who has watched a Preparation H commercial knows, there are plenty of hemorrhoid treatments out there.

In addition to being very gentle when you wipe to avoid irritating hemorrhoids further, you can try:

Hemorrhoids arent the only cause of painful pooping. Rough foods that are hard to digest or have edible seeds, pods, or shells can cause trouble for your toosh.

Rough food can cause small tears in your derrieres delicate tissues also known as anal fissures.

A large, hard poop or a hard-on in the backdoor (yup, were talking about anal sex) can both cause a fissure.

Heres a few other causes of anal fissures:

Add diarrhea and an increase in wiping to the equation, and youve got a nightmare on your hands (and around your anus).

Constipation may be causing your too-hard-poops to pass and cause fissures. If thats why youre butt-sore, your doctor will likely recommend a stool softener.

Doctor prescribed options (increase blood flow which promotes healing):

FYI: if you have chronic or severe cases of anal fissures, you may need a procedure like lateral internal sphincterotomy (LIS) or an injection of Botox.

Whether your condition is chronic or severe will depend on your lifestyle, including dietary habits. Your doctor will be the one to determine whether or not these treatments are needed.

Initially, a doctors goal will be to help you prevent recurring fissures by recommending a high-fiber diet, stool softeners, and drinking plenty of water.

IBS can be really challenging and it comes with some uncomfortable symptoms:

If you have IBS then you likely alternate between periods of diarrhea and bouts of constipation. People with IBS-D (IBS with diarrhea) experience an average of 200 episodes of gas and diarrhea per year. Thats almost as many episodes as Friends had in 10 years. Perspective, eh?

IBS is a chronic condition, but there are ways to manage it with the help of your doctor:

Thats not all, unfortunately. There are a few other gastrointestinal conditions that can cause chronic diarrhea.
