This year my stool went from hard with blood to diarrhea and now back to hard with blood? Is this normal? Or should I go to the doctor?

See a doctor soon: Blood in the stool is never normal. If you have known bleeding hemorrhoids or an anal fissure, probably this doesn't need to be checked out. But if the exact cause is uncertain, see a doctor soon. Even at your young age, some cases of rectal or intestinal bleeding can be quite dangerous, so don't mess around with this. Good luck! ...Read more

15 mnth old blood stools, diarrhea since 3 days used cefixime 30 ml twice for 3days, fever subsided, kid active but bloody stools persist,not eating.

Needs evaluation: I don't take chances with kids - and bloody stool is something that definitely needs evaluation by a doctor. A good place to start with the evaluation is a stool culture - which should reveal what 'germ' is responsible for this... that will help direct the choice of antibiotics.
