Is it normal if your anus is damp hours after having a bowel

This answer was rated:

Is it normal if your anus is damp hours after having a bowel movement. My rectum is swollen and raw from wiping.
Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?
Customer: I get constipated a lot. I have gastricparesis because I've been diabetic since I was 10and I'm 52 now. So I took some laxatives last night.
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No sir

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

This can be a sign of hemorrhoid

Since you have constipation so this can lead to hemorrhoid

So you must have an examination

This can occur normally without hemorrhoids as well but first hemorrhoids must be ruled out

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

Is there anything else it can be? My stool wasn't hard because of the laxatives. Is there anything I can do to dry it out besides wiping.
