Tear also: you have blood on toilet paper and have concerns for a hemorrhoid. It could also be an anal tear or abrasion. This happens from wiping too hard. It is very common. Your doctor will look at your anus and do an exam. If it is a hemorrhoid you will need to alter your diet and add fiber. If it is a tear you can benefit be using a wipe.
