See your physician: Rectal bleeding with constipation may just be due to bleeding hemorrhoids, but it's important not to miss the possibility of colon cancer. You should see your physician for a rectal exam If bleeding hemorrhoids are seen that is the likely cause. But even in that situation a flexible sigmoidoscopy is advised, especially if the constipation is recent>http://bit. Ly/1uzOegm...

What causes burning farts that smell like sulphur? I haven't eaten Anything that contains sulfur. I usually have a bowel movement with it to.

Sulphur smell: That type of flatulence often comes from sulphur containing foods like eggs and certain vegetables.
