Is this hemmroids?

I work in a warm atmsphere at work, and I find that when I go to the bathroom , I am constantly wipping myself and I tend to bleed, but very little (like a small dab or spot) on the toilet paper. This leads to my butt to become tingly and I end up gettign very sore in that area. It also has a foul smell to it. I was wondering is this hemroids or chaffing or what could it be, i am always constantly having to wipe my butt, and i end up getting sore, and i mostly feel that sore at work beacuse the factory is so hot inside. Please help me with any info that you could give me thanks.

Hemorrhoids are enlarged blood vessels.  It doesn't sound as though you have those.  You probably have irritated skin, very common in the anal area, especially where it's hot.  Don't worry about the blood--that's just from rubbing too hard.  I suggest that you wipe yourself very gently (using baby wipes, for instance), lubricate often with Vaseline or any moisturizer.  Occasional use of 1% hydrocortisone (non-prescription) may help, or else a doctor can prescribe a prescription-strength version.  Keep in mind that you will probably have to deal with this off and on for a long time, but you should be able to easily control it and be comfortable.

Take care.
