Hi there, I’m experiencing really bad pain within my stool,

Hi there,
I’m experiencing really bad pain within my stool, I believe it’s a hemorrhoid but I’m not 100% sure. I have had this problem before & it has lasted a while but it always seems to come back.
I am curious if there’s a cream I can purchase in order to help this & cure it. Also, would it heal on its own & is it dangerous to do so.
Thank you!

HI, I am 34 years old and off lately have been experiencing some blood in the stool the day after i drink. I dont drink regularly. I drink once a week (weekend) with my friends (3-4 pegs). within last couple of months, i have bled 3 times the morning after i had drinks. Wasn t much but i could see that on toilet paper and then it stopped by itself. I never had any sort of pain too. Just been feeling little gastic but it has improved since i have started eating more fiber and intentionally consuming more water everyday. I once went to a doctor too and he said it is Hemorrhoids and gave me an ointment to apply for a week which i did. I didn t bled for next few weeks but has bled again since last 2 weekends only the morning after i had drinks. I noticed that the stool is little hard in texture the day after i drink and that might be doing some damage in the area but i have never felt any pain or not even constipation at any time. I checked by placing a mirror under me and i could see little pulp/cyst like thing at the center of the anus which is only visible if i put pressure & it opens up little bit. As per my understanding that is what bleeds due to hard stool. I am not over weight. I am 162 CM tall & weighs around 140-145 pounds with 11-12% body fat. I dont know what causes this & why it happens only after i drink alcohol. It could be polyp or Hemorrhoids but i am not sure. I am worried if it is something serious like colon or rectal cancer. I am thinking of making another appointment with a doctor next week to get it checked. Please advice.

Hi. About 2 months ago, my 6 year old daughter was experiencing some pretty bad stomach pains. We tried to have her use the washroom but she was having difficulty going. For the next hour or so, she was experiencing some severe cramps that seemed to come and go. After about 2 1\2 hours, her tummy ache seemed to go away. Nobody seemed to remember when her last bowel movement was. I ended up giving her a teaspoon of Miralax 2 days later when she still hadn t had a bowel movement. Within the next 24 hours, she had several. However, since this time, her bowel movements continue to be pretty soft. She also has clear to light brown mucus in her underwear. She will think she has to go to the bathroom, but many times, this is all that will come out. This is occurring every 2-3 days. However, she is having regular bowel movements, on average, every 2 days. I informed her pediatrician and she recommends trying to eat more bananas, 2 weekly, to firm her up. Anything else I can do? Thank you.
