Suggest treatment for blood in stool and rectal pain

Hi I ve had pain in rectum since last Thursday.. Normal bowel movements at but but since the weekend my bowels have been loose with bright red blood especially on the toilet paper when wiping... Only time my rectum hurts really is when I cough as I m getting over a bad virus from two weeks ago and have been coughing extremely hard...thought it could be hemorrhoids or a broken blood vessel in my rectum...saw my doctor today and he said to see a specialist just to be sure...what do you think it could be I ve heard bright red blood is not usually something serious... I ve had a lot of gas lately also thank you
