Hello,

Bright blood in or after stools could be due to a variety of conditions, the commonest being hemorrhoids(bleeding piles) or anal fissures. Check out if he complains of pain lasting some time after passing motions or hard stools (more likely to be anal fissures in that case). In case of hard stools, give him a diet rich in fibers like green leafy vegetables, fruits, oats and lots of water.
Also get him to consult your family doctor or a surgeon so that they can examine him and diagnose the cause and suggest appropriate remedy. Homeopathy is beneficial in both the conditions .

HI
I suggest that you get him to seek advise from a surgeon to rule out piles or hemorrhoids if he is also complaining of pain while passing stools.

I am in recovery from an eating disorder. In the past few weeks I have gained back a healthy 10 lbs and have been eating very healthily and stayed active. Today I was alarmed because when I wiped myself after going to the bathroom I found a large dab of blood on my toilet paper. I dabbed again and got nothing. I checked myself and still saw no continuous flow of blood of any sort. My fecal matter was not red, yellow, or black and my stomach doesn t hurt significantly so it doesn t seem like anything is going on or rupturing inside of me that I should be worried about (I have had problems with laxative abuse before so I am pretty familiar with what symptoms of internal damage should look like.) I m hoping that this might just be me getting my period back, although it s been so long that I don t really recognize the symptoms of the menstrual cycle anymore. I was a bit worried so I was hoping to get a professional opinion on what this might be. Thank you.

I was diagnosed with a ruptured cyst on my left ovary 3 days ago. I have been to the ER and gyno a couple times in these last few days... But this morning when I went to the bathroom I noticed blood on the toilet paper after I wiped. Then I noticed a little in my urine . Is this normal since I have a ruptured cyst and its letting off a lot of fluid and blood? Or should I head back to the ER? Please help! (: thanks you!

I was in a car wreck a little over a week ago and tweaked my back a little. Today, when I went to the restroom I had a large amount of blood in my stool. So much that the entire toilet water was red and the toilet paper was covered in blood. I ve been diagnosed with hemroids before and jut needed to eat more fiber and all was fine, but I want to make sure tha these two things are not related because of the amount of blood there was.

I have some tailbone pain after a slight fall on Tuesday but I also have some pain in the rectum and itchiness. I had a colonoscopy last year and was told I had 2 internal hemorrhoids .I had the the symptoms of pain in the rectum and itchiness before I fell on my tailbone. I had a very small amount of blood on my bathroom tissue but only one time 3 days ago. Are these hemorrhoids acting up and what s the best way to proceed.

I have a hemorrhoid and I looked up how to treat it. The websites talked about procedures and what not, but I also found one that offered natural remedies. This website instructed me to avoid spicy foods, oily foods, junk foods and fast foods. Also, it said not to drink alcohol, tea, coffee or smoke. Now, I have two questions: Are these going to help my hemorrhoid go away? When it says to avoid smoking, is it talking about cigarettes, marijuana, or both?

There is a small amount of blood on the tissue after I wipe after a bowel movement. I also itch and sometimes am sore. I was thinking it was a hemorrhoid and have been using preparation H but it only gives temporary relief and the itch and pain comes back. I m also having irregular bowel movements. I wouldn t say that it s diarrhea but its not solid stool either. Often times after I finish with my bowel movement I still feel like I have to go and get an ache in my stomach. I m not sure if these are all related or separate.
