Hi, This could be anal skin tag secondary to an anal fissures, hemorrhoids. 'An anal fissure is a tear in the anus skin. ' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anal_fissure 'Symptoms of external hemorrhoids may include painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus that results when a blood clot forms. In addition, excessive straining, rubbing, or cleaning around the anus may cause irritation with bleeding and/or itching. 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemorrhoid It would be best to consult a surgeon for your symptoms to find out the cause of your complaints. Till then you could try eating a high-fiber diet, using stool softener, taking pain killer and having a sitz bath for your symptoms. Apply calamine lotion at the site, keep the area clean and well moisturized, wear lose, comfortable clothes and maintain good personal hygiene. Regards.

Bleeding from anus can be due to fissure, piles, rectal bleeding, rectal polyps or trauma to the rectum. You need to get it examined from a surgeon.
