Assuming you DID get musked - then try to handle a little bit gentler. 10-15 minutes at a time is good.
What he said, sounds like musk

As for how often just as Ryan said it always varies. Example my royal does a nice big poo every 2-3 months but my boa does it at least twice a month but they're on the smaller side.
