Hi, after having hemroids last year I was not overly worried when I developed one 5 days ago. I bought some cream and in the past few days the size of the lump has shrunk and the pain is less. I had been drinking lots of water and fruit juices to allow for easy stools, although I have been refraining form going to much. Tonight when going to the toilet I past a lot more blood than I would think normal for hemroids. Although I had noticed some bleeding when applying cream, I wasnt very worried, but when at the toilet the water had turned red and there was loose fluid blood in the basin. I hope that its just the rupture but I am rather worried. Its not bleeding now however, definatly not in the way it was before.
I would realy like some advice. Just how much blood can there be? Should I go to the doctor?
((didnt realy know what section to post this as there was no hemroids section.))
Im not sure if it is classed as a "lot" of blood. Certainly enough to turn the water red and leaving a fair few drops on the basin, clealy seperate from the stool.
Upon closer observation of the hemroid there is blood around it and the anus, although this is not dripping and seems more like the blood you'd get after a cut. So im wondering if the hemroid has ruptured clean through the skin and therefore is trying to heal over although I can feel no scabing, although fully probing the area is extremly awkward given the hemroid, plus holding a mirror and being a man hair gets in the way. (not very dignified)
the fluid blood puzzles me, as there has been non in the bath.
