Blood in stool, constipation. Does this need treatment?

Hey! I ve had trouble Pooped received recently. There is something out, but I do not get it all out. 2 days ago, I saw a tiny red dot that looked like blood , is this dangerous? I ve tried to go to the bathroom several times a day but I can usually out just a bit. Have had a successful round in the toilet. I m going to go on vacation tomorrow and was just wondering if I should go down to the emergency room at once, or if this come to pass by itself? Thank you

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Thanks! for putting your query in HCM.

Painless bleed per rectum associated with constipation suggest hemorrhoids.

I will advise to make your stool soft by taking lots of fibres in your diet, also psyllium fibres, by some laxative.

If there is continued bleeding after softening of stool then seek opinion of a gastroenterologist who may advise you to undergo sigmoidoscopy examination

Hope this will help you. Remain in touch
