No. Must see Dr soon: Lactose intolerance can give diarrhea but not blood in the stool. Blood in the stool can be from bleeding hemorrhoids or more serious conditions like colorectal cancer. The following website will explain the possible causes of rectal bleeding. Please review it and then see your physician > http://bit.ly/1KXooGn
