Is it blood in my stool or just undigested food?

I recently went to the doctor because I saw a tiny bit of blood on the outer part of my stool, and after "checking things out", he said he that the area just inside my rectum was very raw and that this was most likely the problem. After taking some medication, I saw no streaks for a couple of weeks. However, this morning when I looked at my stool, there was red chunks all over and inside it. I initially freaked out but then I remembered that I ate sun-dried tomatoes yesterday, and the spots might be them. I feel perfectly normal. Any suggestions on what I should do?

Sun dried tomatoes to that to me as well. So do cranberries! For a while, I was eating "Craisins" (dried cranberries). Shall we just say, my whole body was in tune with the holiday and things looked very "festive"...
