Question: blood from rectal area when wiping.
Answered by Dr. Chobufo Ditah 38 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Are you having anal pains? How long has this been?

Detailed Answer:

This is probably related to hard stools or a minor injury. Before we conclude, it is important to know for how long this has been going on and whether there is any pain. Also, what is the nature of your stool? Hard, soft? Has this ever happened before?

Hope to hear from you and promise to be back soon with many insights and helpful recommendations to address this.
