    I'm pretty sure I have an external hemmorhoid..it's a small lump on my anus and I have a bad habit of straining when I go to the bathroom..I was prescribed a stool softener awhile ago for a small anal fissure which has gone away, so I think I'm going to continue taking the softener, and begin taking sitz baths to make the hemmorhoid go away. Is this what i should do? Are there any other remedies? Also..the hemmorhoid isnt giving me a lot of pain, it's just somewhat uncomfortable at times, along with a small amount of itching. Thanks for any help!!

    I have had some itchiness in my anus for awhile and I never really thought about it as a big problem. I have a bad habit of straining when I go to the bathroom, and a small amount of bright red blood was showing up on my stool, and sometimes on the toilet paper. I assumed it was roids after doing a lot of research because i got really nervous since im only 18. I put off making my crappy diet better, and now im regretting it because recently, I went #2 and i felt a sharp pain right on my anus, and I thought it might be a tear, because I passed a large hard stool. There was a small drop of blood in the toilet. The next time I went to the bathroom after that there was a good amount of blood in the toilet. Not a rediculous amount, but enough to change the color of the water a little bit. I wiped myself and there was a lot of blood on the paper. There was no pain except for the small tear on my anus, but I'm really concerned. Plz HELP ME!!
