i've tried the cortifoam a few times and it seems the next poopies i make after there is more blood than usual. is it possible that the cortifoam is aggravating the mucosa or is this just some healing response that is opposite to what i think it should be? thanks!

It might just be that your symptom of bleeding is getting a little worse and it may just be coincidence with using the can take time for it to kick in, personally I would continue using it but if in doubt, definitely call your doc about it.

Feel better soon :)

I agree with Pb. Maybe give it a bit longer to see if it's going to work for you. I would say maybe a week, week and a half and if if you don't notice any improvement or you get worse then contact your doc.
