After using the bathroom, I've found that I'm wiping away a little blood. It does not happen all the time I have stools, but perhaps half of the time. It also seems to only appear when I wipe and not in the stools themself. There has not been any pain really since it started happening about a month ago, but it does not feel normal. I am a young male, so I am concerned since I dont know what it could be.
I suggest that you seek consult with an internist. One differential will be hemorrhoids.Bleeding disorders and intestinal disorders have to be ruled out.
I suggest a thorough evaluation so you may be properly managed.
Drink adequate amount of water everyday.Add fruits and vegetables and lots of fiber in the diet. Exercise regularly to improve circulation.
