Why does my butt itch & why am I irritated down there?

So many people know how it feels to be sitting there, squirming a little, wishing to be a bear backing up to scratch himself on a tree, and not an itchy bum sufferer sitting at a desk.

One simple answer is this – many people aren’t getting as clean as they think from their toilet paper. Not to get too technical, but…there may be a “leftovers” issue where the sun don’t shine. One study found that leftover poo is the cause of 50-75% of all itchy butts*. The digestive enzymes that do such a great job of breaking down food within our bodies can be itchy when left behind on delicate skin.

Besides the uncomfortable itch, irritation can occur from toilet paper that’s not made for sensitive skin, but don’t worry, there’s hope!

What can I do to fix it?

For adults that have graduated from potty training, don’t worry! It’s not necessarily human error. It could be the toilet paper’s fault. Toilet paper irritation can happen if it’s too thin or if it’s too rough. The best toilet paper for irritation is a toilet paper with a drop of soothing lotion like Charmin Ultra Gentle!

If it your toilet paper disintegrates too easily, it might not get you fully clean. Once again, you will be left in itchy butt territory, scratch town, squirm city…you get the drift. The best toilet paper for getting completely clean is a thicker, stronger ** variety like Charmin Ultra Strong that will do a better job of de-pooing ***
