Why Is A Blood Spot On The Toilet Paper After I Am Finished Wiping
I was diagnosed with internal hemorrhoid. Every time I go to to wipe there is spots of red blood on the toilet paper. Is this normal to always bleed?
You can "calm down" these hemorrhoids by making sure your stool is not hard (by drinking lots of fluids!! PLUS using a hemorrhoidal CREAM with CORTISONE

Hope this helps!
