Without an examination to see where the bleeding is coming from it is not possible over the internet or telephone to say whether it is nothing to worry about or something that needs treating. Therefore as has been said many times before, you need to go and see a registered medical practitioner and then your mind as well as your tail can rest assured.

There are some very benign things that can produce this blood, but there are some potentially dangerous things as well. Best get someone with some expertise to find out.

Some toilet paper are rough and could make skin irritation which could lead to infection. Also it is very possible that the faeces is still around that also will caus infection because od the dirt.

Using toilet paper first, then wash it with water is a much more advisable option. It's because you wouldn't know if your anus is bleeding if you just wash it off with water, then it may worsen the whatever-condition that is in the anus and worse, causing infection with other complications. Early detections are always much effective for our body.

Moreover, I have to agree to most of the replies here. Seeking a medical professional's help is essential when it comes to bleeding from within. It could be as simple as haemorrhoids, or it could be as fatal as internal bleeding. It will also have to depend on the colour of the blood that comes with the excrements to determine which part is really bleeding.

OK you guys are over analyzing the whole thing. The blood you are seeing is from friction from the toilet paper. Causing your skin to be dry and broken.

Let me ask you this, when you see the blood on the toilet paper, is right when you do the initial whipe or after several? If so, this proves that isn't blood in your fecal matter, it is from the friction of you whipping. Maybe get softer toilet paper?

But if you are that worried about it, check it out.

anal fissures, hemorrhoids, cancers and polyps of the rectum and colon, diverticulosis, abnormal blood vessels (angiodysplasia), ulcerative colitis, ulcerative proctitis, Crohn's colitis, infectious colitis, ischemic colitis, and Meckel's diverticula.
