Hello doctor,

Sometimes I notice bright, pink drops of blood on the toilet paper. They are very light and unnoticeable. I had a hemorrhoid surgery about 17 years ago. Also, I have chronic constipation. What is the cause of blood? Should I be worried?

Kindly advise.



Welcome to

I understand your concern and would be happy to help. You have internal piles. I suggest the below treatment plan:

  • Include salads and fruits in your diet.
  • Do abdominal exercises daily.
  • Take lukewarm water regularly.
  • Tablet Pilex (Ayurvedic ormulation) two tablets three times a day for six weeks.
  • Naturolax powder (Isphagula husk and Senna powder) one teaspoon in 200 ml of water at night for a few weeks.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.
