Suggest treatment for blood in stool

Today... I used the bathroom and noticed my stool was red(well at least most of it was) and a light brown color. It s the first time this has ever happened to me. I looked online... I m not experincing any pains nor did I have any troubles using the bathroom.

Hi,

Your symptoms seem to be related to hemorrhoids. I recommend using anti-hemorrhoid cream for local application such as Preparation H. I also recommend using daily probiotics to avoid constipation. Soak in warm water for temporary relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi,
