Bleeding after passing stools, bright red blood, goes away on wiping. Cure?

Howdy, I sometimes there is blood in the toilet after I poop. It doesn t happen every day or every week, or month. When it happens, the blood is bright red as if I scraped my arm or something similar. The blood appears on the toilet paper as well and goes away after a few wipes. I do not believe there is blood in my stool .

Thanks for your query.
You could be having a small anal fissure.
That could bleed off and on, and typically presents as a streak of fresh red blood after bowel movements.
Also, it could be a small fistula in ano.
A small external haemorrhoid ( piles ) also presents in this way.
To know the exact diagnosis, please visit a doctor who would examine you .
All the best.
