The blood in your stools is most likely due to a small mucosal tare, due to your hard stools. I suggest that you soften your stools with Laxette syrup, Softlax and fibre capsules (Solgar Multiple Fibre capsules is a good product available at health stores). Also consume a lot of water. The piles can be treated with Scheriproct suppositries in combination with Proctocydil ointment.
