Hi there XXXXXXX Thank you for posting your question.

If the bleeding you are experiencing during bowel movement is bright red, comes before or is streaked on the bowel movement itself then it is a safe guess that this blood is coming from the anus from something like hemorrhoids or a fissure.

If you tend to suffer from constipation then this would confirm such a diagnosis. Judging by the ointments you have been given it would appear that your doctor, who may have done a digital rectal examination on you, is of this opinion also. The bleeding may take, not a day or two but a few weeks to settle down. You will also need to increase your intake of roughage if constipation is an issue.

I hope you found this useful and will accept my answer. If you have any further questions for me then please feel free to go ahead and ask.

Thanks and good luck.
