Sometimes you sit on the toilet for a long time, which can lead to the formation of batteries due to the fact that you are constantly making effort.
Try to avoid doing this often or at least take breaks from sitting on the toilet to get up and walk a little.
- You clean yourself excessively.
In this case, the rule of “less is more” applies. Toilet paper actually irritate the perianal skin, leading to irritation and itching. Wiping himself twice is enough.

The use of water to remove fecal waste is also highly recommended.
