Bowel Incontinence

Bowel incontinence is the loss of voluntary bowel control or involuntary leakage from the bowel. It can often lead to irritation of the skin, skin breakdown, and discomfort. Bowel incontinence often comes as a result of constipation. Other causes include lack of contraction of the rectal muscles, muscle weakness in the colon, a history of rectal surgery or a tear after childbirth, diet, medications (antibiotics or laxatives) or gastrointestinal infection.
