You may apply Vaseline or Prep H and apply direct pressure to help stop an episode of hemorrhoid bleeding
If you can't stop bleeding within 15 minutes then get checked
Ongoing significant bleeding for whatever reason would need to be checked ..
They could check you at ER if you need
I hope that this is helpful for you
Let me know if you have further questions or concerns
I will be happy to get back with you
