If you have done everything that you can but the bleeding still won’t stop, it is time that you seek medical attention.

If it does not and it comes with other alarming signs such as fever, severe pain, or other disturbances, you must call your doctor immediately. You may be advised to go through further examination that will help determine the underlying cause and the most effective treatment to deal with it.

Rectal bleeding must not be taken for granted because for all you know, it could be a sign of colon cancer or other serious health conditions. Keep track of your condition’s progress and know when to seek medical care and attention for symptoms that would not improve or go away.
