Thank you for visiting health24.com.
It is most probably due to a small mucousal tear, due the hardness of your stools. You can also have piles and I therefore, suggest that you use a stool softner (like Laxette syrup) for a period of one week. If the problem persists, you will have to consult your GP, to have a stool sample send away for analysis, as well as an examination of the rectum.
