Welcome to the HCM

The rectal bleeding after bowel movement is commonly due to hemorrhoids. The hemorrhoids have 3 grades and each grade have its treatment accordingly. The first grade is commonly treated with drug treatment or banding ligation and the later two requires surgical removal.

Therefore you are recommended to visit a general surgeon for a detailed proctoscopy to grade your disease and receive the appropriate treatment accordingly.

For pain relief you can use troncance gel which is a local anesthetic and applied per anal.
