Brief Answer: yes this can be due hemorrhoids Detailed Answer: Hello. Thank you for the query. Yes, blood on the surface of the stool and on the toilet paper is very charcteristic for hemmorhoids. Especially if you have had sucj symptoms beforr and hemorrhoids were diagnosed. I suggest you to try such treatment: -Have sitz baths with Oak Bark twice a day - start hemorrhoids suppositories - increase fiber rich products to avoid constipation - wash your rectum after every stool If this wont help in a week, consult your doctor and cinsider surgery. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
