15 year old having bleeding below the tailbone. No pain. Suggestions?

I m a 15-year-old male. I noticed blood on my underwear, and upon further investigation, I noticed that the blood is coming from the top of my butt crack, just below the tailbone. The blood stops for about a week, but returns for a few days. The blood is very little, and I feel no pain. Can you help me, or give me any suggestions?

Thanks for query,
Is there any hole at that area.?If yes then it is a Piloneedle sinus.
Piloneedle sinus is a congenital condition.During embryonic development it leaves a hole behind.
Due to our hair falls some times it penetrated inside the hall causes infection causes blood staining.
The other possibility is of simple inflammatory boil.
Ask your doctor to diagnose it.

Hi welcome to HCMForum. Slight oozing below the tail bone suggests piles or an abscess. I advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. as there is no pain more chances are there for piles only ie internal piles. Doctor will confirm the diagnosis by proctoscopy.
Besides i advise you some diet recomendations as take more of green leafy vegetables pulses fruits and juices. thanks for calling.
