1. Adjust Your Menu.
Reduce foods that are both spicy and fatty, like chicken wings smothered in hot sauce. Excess fat can be a problem because the bile salts your body uses to digest them can irritate the skin around your anus.
If you’re not giving up eating wings any time soon, soak up some of the fatty acids in your gut by taking a fiber supplement like Metamucil.
2. Keep Your butt Clean.
This may be a totally ridiculous thing to tell a grown man, but you’ll want to keep your butt as clean and dry as possible if your anus regularly burns or itches after eating spicy foods.
Wash your anus with a mild soap and warm water. Once it’s clean, apply a soothing cream like calamine and it will reduce itching and burning.
One more thing: If discomfort lingers, see your doctor. Pain in your butt can be a symptom of more serious problems like an infection, fissure, abscess, or cancer.
3. Eat chili peppers for 3 weeks straight.
Yes, this strategy is far-fetched. But it’s for the guy who absolutely can’t live without his spicy foods—no matter how much discomfort it causes.
If you only eat spicy foods for a couple days, you induce “rectal hypersensitivity”—that burning pain, plus the frequent urge to go number two poop.
