Occasional Light Pink When Wiping (Buttocks)?


I'm a 23-year-old guy, and in the last few months, I've noticed two or three times after wiping (my buttocks), there's been a very light amount of pink on the toilet paper.

Each time this has happened, I believe it was either after excreting a particularly difficult (large) piece of excrement, or after I've just been back from the beach. So, I hope it might just be because I got scraped in there with a little sand, or that it tore a little from the large excrement.

I'm currently doing research abroad, so it's a little difficult to go to a good English-speaking doctor.

I'm in excellent health otherwise, so do you think this is anything to be worried about?

Thanks very much!

Re: Occasional Light Pink When Wiping (Buttocks)?

Normally when you get any type of bleed from the rectum you should get it checked just to make sure it is nothing serious.
But from your description it sounds as if you slightly irritated an area of your rectum while pushing out the poo.
If you continue to strain while doing poo's, this will eventually cause hemorroids which are not serious but can be very annoying.
Hope this helps a bit
