Do they burn sometimes or bleed?  Im currently on 2.5mg of prednisone taper from a 40mg start, which I started about a month ago.  i just hope Im not flaring up again.  Im having formed bm's, but today I passed one and it kinda burned coming out (gross i know)and there was minimal blood on the toilet tissue. But my stool looked perfectly normal.   any ideas??   thanks yall!

Sounds more likely to be a fissure than a hemmie.

You could take a look-see yourself...a fissure is a cut in the anal folds..

If in fact it is a fissure, hydrocortisone cream works well....

As well, increasing your fibre intake with a supplement will help bulk the stool in a "softer/fluffier" way to help lessen the incidence of fissures.

Since I started the supplements on a regular basis, I haven't been plagued much with the fissure I have.

Just a suggestion, but it would be best to look (yes, squat over a mirror).

We're not grossed out by much around here...

I have internal hemmies and sometimes it burns coming out too - after a while my rectal area will start itching. I have no other symptoms. But sometimes I will have a bit of blood on the stool and sometimes on the paper.
