Patient :Hi I have all of a sudden found blood in my poo it's diarrhea at the moment but I feel fine no pain I was at work holding it in today for about 4 hours could that of caused a tear or anything?
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Diarrhea with mild bleeding in the stool is suggestive of acute colitis, and there is no possibility of any tears here.
Please start an antibiotic course like Tab. Ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice daily for 5 days along with a course of probiotics.
Hope this was helpful,
