Past two days when i make a bowel movement it burns real bad. I do have a internal hemorrhoid. Is that why? Why would it burn though?

Unlikely : This is unlikely to be due to hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids a rarely hurts. External hemorrhoids may hurts but you will feel them. The burning is likely due to small tears in the anal canal. This can happen for patients that are usually constipated or have large bowel movements. Simple treatments are still softeners that are available over-the-counter, increase fiber intake, and sits baths. ...Read more

I have hemorrhoid and was given medicine hemorol.It went away. But I had pain like needle with bowel movement and blood. Now now it is blueish color.

Hemorrhoid: If the blood was bright red, it was most likely from the hemorrhoid. This bleeding will probably keep occurring from that external hemorrhoid and I recommend that you consult a proctologist or colon rectal surgeon for definitive treatment should rectal bleeding recur. ...Read more
