Fecal incontinence in itself is no fun. But what is the worst that can happen if you experience this condition?
There are two possible complications:
- Skin irritation – Fecal incontinence can seriously irritate your skin. When your bum skin is in repeated contact with bowl movements, it can become painful, itchy, and even ulcers can arise that will need treatment from your doctor.
- Big time embarrassment – This kind of goes without saying. Fecal incontinence is seriously embarrassing and can lead to severe emotional distress. While it’s an embarrassing topic, it’s important that you are able to talk to others who experience the condition.
