Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern.
Bright red blood mostly indicates blood coming from lower GIT such as rectum or the anal canal.
It can happen due to hard stools, from fresh tears while the hard stool comes out.
Was this a one time thing? Or has it been happening frequently?
Feel free to discuss further.
Patient replied :
It has been present for the past week. Somedays there is a lot of blood whereas other days only a little is present. Should I get it checked up or is this something that will heal on itself.
If you have a recent history of constipation, it can be from the rectal tears as I mentioned. On that case, it will heal on it's own.
You need to ensure that your stool is soft over the next few days, as any further injury can cause more bleeding.
Please take adequate fibre in the diet, and if required you can take Syrup Lactulose 2 teaspoons before bed, to ensure soft stools next morning.
