Needs to be seen: There are several possibilities all of which need to be evaluated by a doctor. These include infection, colon polyp, meckels diverticulum, and hemorrhoids. Go to your doctor tomorrow. If she is feeling weak, looks ill or has a fast heart rate go to er tonight as her blood level may be low.

Agree with Dr. A: Any abnormal bleeding needs to be investigated to treat the lesion and to prescribe iron and vitamins to prevent anemia. It is imperative that you take the child to her pediatrician.
