I wasn't have bleeding prior . And now every so often I feel an urge to go to bathroom and its just small blood clots or small amount of blood, but its been frequent in thenlast 12 hours. I had no symptoms prior to this, but the instant I did it, symptoms occurred.

I am in discomfort, more so from having to gonto the bathroom frequently and shaky (but again I think it's due to the frequency ).

Dear customer

Thank you for the quick reply.

As you have ignorantly used hydrogen peroxide anally & now having bleeding from anus,you can apply preparation H anally to get instant relief.It provides great relief from irritation and burning.

Apply protectants like aluminum hydroxide gel,they prevent irritation of the perianal area by forming a physical barrier on the skin.If there is excessive pain then apply menthol 0.1% to 1.0% . These are available as OTC without prescription & will help you greatly.

If still after this,the bleeding or other symptoms persists.then you need to go to ER for examination & hence the treatment accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped.
