I just noticed bright red blood on the TP.
 
I had something similar about 8 years ago but it was due to a hemorriod issue so it was obvious.
 
This time the thing that scares me is that there is absoutely no pain or burning - so I don't think it is at the surface.
 
Any ideas what this could be due to? I eat very spicy food - that's going to stop right now :-(

It could still be a hemroid. I have never had pain or burning when I had a hemi bleed. Chances are if it is bright red that is what it is and it may take a day or two to subside. If there continues to be a lot then call the Dr. It is probably an internal hemmie that ruptured. I would stop the spicy food for awhile. Of course if there is lots of blood that won't stop then go to ER.

Thanks for your input. I guess it's an internal hemmoroid.
But I'm going to make an appointment asap with a GI specialist and have it checked out just in case.
Is there a way to heal those and prevent future ruptures?

My hemmroids don't burn or hurt.  They will itch as they heal up after I've aggrevated them, though. 
 
As far as I am aware, there's nothing you can do to get rid of an internal hemmroid, short of surgery, and that's not often recommended.  Most of them are harmless, so it's less painful to leave them alone.

I think that certain types of food may irritate them, in my case I was straining too hard one day.
