Most probably it can be haemmorhoids(piles), but there are other conditions like anal fissure, colitis,diverticulitis, colonic cancer, anal fissure. The problem should be in lower intestinal tract since you have mentioned blood. Investigations can be suggested only after seeing the patient. Since your are already having it for a month better go and see a gastroentrologist for early diagnosis and treatment. Check your Hb along with other investigations. Take care.

For the past few days ive had a fever and thought that it was just one that would come and go, but its been almost 3 days now and I ve experianced a small mx of blood in my poop, when I wiped my butt it had blood on the tissue but i was only a small mix. At first I didnt get much poop out and it was just a light brown liquid with a bit of blood in the mix, my butt has been hurting but my stomach and everything else has been fine aside from the fever like symptoms, I ve had hemmoroids before but never had bloody poop. The bloody poop has not been loads of blood and I think it just may be Haemorrhoids. Please help
