How frequently are you passing stool?

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
Common cause is hemorrhoid.
Hemorrhoids can recur.
There may not be any pain with it.
Anal fissure can cause bleeding.
But it is usually associated with sharp pain.
Polyp, growth can be factors.
Sometimes, inflammatory bowel diseases, diverticulitis,infection etc. can be the causes.
If you do not have any other symptom, it can be bleeding from hemorrhoid.
But you need to consult doctor to have a check up.
Till you see doctor, you can apply Preparation H.
Try to keep stool soft. Improvement of constipation may help to reduce the symptoms.
Other home measures include bowel softeners, & plenty of fluid , fresh fruits or vegetables.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
