I have blood coming from my anus.

I have blood coming from my anus.

Trivial vs Serious: Usually this is from passing a hard piece of stool or some other trauma. It hurts, and goes away in short order. If this does not stop in a few days or if the stream is hard, or if the bleeding is or becomes very heavy, a physician visit is in order; if you are losing a large amount of blood (more than a pint total), emergency room visit. Good luck.

I notice after a bowel movement I have blood coming from my anus. What could be the reason for this? Should I go to the emergency room? It is also painful.

Bleeding after BM: The most likely reason for pain and bleeding after a bowel movement would be an anal fissure, or tear. This usually happens when a person tries to pass an unusually hard stool - as when we are constipated. The tissues tear a bit, and bleed. Hemorrhoids can bleed also. I think you should go to the er if the bleeding is heavy (unlikely). But do talk to your doctor about this problem. Lgromkomd.

If it persists: Bleeding form the anus is one of the know complications of anal sex. It should go away in day or so. You may help the healing process by keeping your stool soft by taking a fiber laxative and drinking plenty of water. It bleeding persists beyond a week, see a doctor.

See MD if repeated: Many entities can cause - commonly constipation (mucous flow around blockage), but also others like infection, inflammation, gut food allergies, tumors. If this is recurrent, be sure to followup with ur doctor. Red flags requiring more urgent workup would be pain, blood, fever, weight loss, age>50, positive family history of colorectal cancer, and prior polyps/colon cancer. Avoid milk for now

Minor anal bleeding: Dying?? Of course not! A little anal irritation with blood is very common and usually harmless. Perhaps you are wiping too hard -- go easy, or perhaps use moist towelettes or moisten toilet tissue with water. If bleeding continues, see a doctor -- maybe an anal fissure or hemorrhoids; these also are minor health problems.

Itchy Anus: An itchy anus could be caused by many things: detergent allergy, external hemorrhoid, pinworms, moisture, diarrhea etc... Pinworms come out at night, so if you are itching mostly at night, this could be the problem. A piece of clear tape placed on the anus when it is itching at night can show tiny mites. Hemorrhoids treated with preparation-h. Try unscented laundry soap to r/o allergy.
