Rectal bleeding.: in this scenario, it is most likely that your bleeding is coming from whatever is irritating your anus. It is important, however, to be sure of the source of bleeding in someone who is 40 years old. After your inflammation is improved,you may benefit from an examination of your colon, perhaps a colonoscopy. Good luck.
