I have had very bloody D and have never had a hemmaroid. I think you should avoid eating skins on any fruits or vegetables. It's probably too rough on your system. I don't think the ulcers can scab. From what I understand, they get irritated and then open and release blood. My guess is that each time, it was caused by something you ate. You are lucky you don't flare up after all that. Tell your doctor, please and tell us what he says.
