I have been having bright red water in the toilet bowl. I have been reading a lot of forums and it is all saying the stool actually contains blood. In my case the entire toilet bowl water turns bright red, almost as if someone dumped red food coloring in it. It has happened a few times in the past year, but it has been persistent for the past four days or so. I am only 21, and it is worrying me. I am just wondering what it could be, or if the other forums for The stool actually being bright red is something i could follow for my situation as well?
Go to a doctor with this and request a Sigmoidoscopy (or full colonoscopy). The fact that the blood is red means it's fresh and in the lower portion of the bowel. If it was a little blood on the tissue I'd say it was probably hemorrhoids, but they don't produce as much blood as you've described. With this much blood there's a chance that either (a) there was a ruptured diverticula (unlikely given your age) (b) something occurred which damaged that area, or (c) there are ulcers in the lower bowel region. These are not the only things that could be going on, but given your age they are 3 likely culprits. All need to be investigated.

you can treat it yourself,,,with neosporin,,,keep it very clean down there,and dont wipe har,,,,you can go get some anti biotics too,this will help you from getting infection.
