Hi,

Such small amount of blood on outside of stool can be associated Hemorrhoids,Anal fissure.

You should try some self care remedies like

Eat fibre rich diet and take citrucel.

Also wipe with moist toilet paper.

Avoid straining during defecation.

And avoid spicy food.

If it persists then see your doctor for a clinical exam.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
