Hello,

Welcome to Justanswer!

My name is***** and am reviewing your question now.

How old are you? How much is the bleeding? Is it at the end of bowel movement or mixed with stool? Any diarrhea, fever, nausea?

Thank you for the information.

Passing blood in stool is not normal and there must be a reason behind it. Many times bleeding is the first sign of disease, so proper evaluation is required. There are many causes of blood in stool, some of them are hemorrhoids, fissures, polyps,inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, tumor. Since the amount of bleeding is small and stool is coated with blood, the possibilities of polyps and lower GI inflammation has to be ruled out. It could also be due to hemorrhoids, which is very common at your age, but usually presents with bleeding and pain at the end of bowel movement, may also coat stool. At your age, causes are usually minor and treatable. However, other causes has to be ruled out. If it's hemorrhoids, preparation H is helpful.
