Hi I have all of a sudden found blood in

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?

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.Diarrhea with mild bleeding in the s tool 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,Regards
