Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having bleeding from anus is most likely due to hemorrhoids.

Although you do not have any definite bump or soreness or pain there,but this bleeding can most likely be due to internal hemorrhoids.

Generally, the closer the bleeding site is to the anus, the blood will be a brighter red. This blood is coming from lower gastro intestinal tract.

Other less probable causes are: diverticular bleeding,intestinal infection (such as bacterial enterocolitis),inflammatory bowel disease(IBD), ulcerative collitis,crohn's disease.

But most likely this is due to internal hemorrhoids.

To treat hemorrhoids & this bleeding,please apply cream called preparation H. You can get it at your pharmacy without prescription.This will help you greatly.

If still after this,the symptoms of bleeding persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription medications will then be required accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
