    What causes anal bleeding?

What would cause your bowel movements to be so acidic that it burns the skin and causes bleeding around the anus? Very painful and difficult to touch, bowel movements are runny and sometimes just pure water. Could some medications cause this or nor having a gall bladder?

Your symptoms seem to be related to Hemorrhoids.

Some advice that I can give to you is:
-Add fiber to your diet slowly to avoid problems with gas.
-Use topical treatments.
-Apply an over-the-counter hemorrhoid cream or suppository containing hydrocortisone, or use pads containing witch hazel or a numbing agent.
-Soak regularly in a warm bath or sitz bath.

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