Fiber/stool softners: These are typically caused by straining with bowel movements.Increasing dietary fiber will help with softening the stools.If you can't achieve this with fiber alone, you can add a stool softener/laxative like miralax (polyethylene glycol).You want soft stools that occur w/o straining.If you have rectal bleeding you need to visit your doctor to make sure this is the correct diagnosis.An office procedure can help too.
