Thrombosed hemorrhoi: Sounds like u had a thrombosed hemorrhoid which burst open and releasesdthe clot. I would recommend soaking your bottom in warm water every day (×2) till it resolves. They may come back and I agree with everything you r doing. If you see a big clot still attached to it and its not going away, I would recommend seeing a surgeon to remove it. No need to put any ointment. ...Read more

The bleeding will: Eventually stop. This is old blood from the dissolving clot. The pain should have eased after it started to bleed. The bleeding may last for 10-14 days. Best thing is to wear a light day sanitary pad. If still problematic on return to home see your doctor or a colorectal surgeon to remove the remaining clot and stop the bleeding sooner. The worst is over. Relax. This is unlikely to be fresh blood. ...Read more
