Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids probably. You may not feel them, especially the internal ones. They can bleed. Another thing that comes to mind is an anal fissure, which is a cut in the wall of the rectum. But fissures are very painful and usually don't bleed as profusely as hemorrhoids can. See a doctor if it doesn't settle down in the next few days. ...Read more

Stop rubbing: The blood represents irritation that can occur even with 3 ply toilet tissue, so less would be even more irritating. Thankfully, wipes were developed that can assist our need for perfectly clean butts that in the older times were more readily left dirty, giving rise to "skid marks". If the obsession is pathologic, expressed in other cleansing frenzies, a true neurosis (OCD) could be lurking. ...Read more

Should heal: If you have some minor trauma from the masturbation, then you could just let it heal. If you are in a lot of pain, you could see a doctor or try over the counter anusol and ibuprofen by mouth. If you don't think the masturbation caused it, then I think you should see a doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

Another opinion: It would be nearly impossible to diagnose this over this forum, however, if you are that unsure of the ER doctor's diagnosis and whatever they told you to do for treatment of it is not working, I would highly suggest you seek the opinion of your primary care doctor to see if they have another opinion that better fits and may be able to better treat the condition. Best of luck. ...Read more
