Customer Question

As part of a stupid dare I did 3 days ago, I inserted a hot pepper into my anus for around 3 minutes.
Ever since I experience a watery leak and I'm nut sure I have the same power of contracting my sphincter. I also noticed a small hemorrhoid being expressed. I think I'm also constipated for few days so I do not know if my symptoms are due to potential permanent damage I might have done to my nerves or my sphincter or is it just due to rectal mucosa inflammation hence the hemorrhoid or is it due to constipation + panic as I learnt potential risks of my action after the facts and I'm really anxious and panicked that I might have done permanent damage now. During the dare I experienced some inflammation but not significant pain.. Is it possible to have done damage to my nerves or any permanent damage? Should I get a specialist to consult me?

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
I do not think that there would have been any permanent damage inside.
It should improve gradually over the next week or two.
I would, however, like that you should be examined to make sure everything is okay.
The possibility of permanent nerve damage is non-existent.
Let me know if you have more questions.

Thank you for your prompt answer doctor!

Just 2 more reply questions please:

Is there a chance of anal sphincter damage (internal or external) or is it just mucosa inflammation + hemorrhoid that cause the watery leak and?

The symtoms have gone better since 3 days ago, if they go better it's the latter (inflammation + hemorrhoid) rather than any permanent damage?

It is the inflammation caused by the hot pepper that is causing watery leak which should settle gradually as the inflammation subsides over a period of a week or two. So you should be okay in due course of time.

Yes that is absolutely true.
Let me know if you have more questions.
Kind regards

Thank you so much for putting my mind at ease!

It was a stupid thing of me to do (the dare) and I shall not be such an idiot but I wanted to know if my stupidity has caused permanent rather than transient damage!

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
I understand your concerns.
But again, not something to worry about as far as I am concerned.
Kind regards
