There are many causes of blood on stools.In india,most commonly it is due to piles(haemorrhoids).
If the passage of stools is associated with pain,it is Fissure in ano.
Please drink plenty of fluids.
Eat high fiber diet.
Your stools should be soft.If the stools are hard,it causes injury to the lining of anus leading to crack called fissure.
Take stool softeners like Lactulose solution 15ml in the night if your stools are hard.
Take Pilex tablets.
Nothing to worry
Wish you good health
