My 5 year old daughter has had blood in her stool the last two times she has gone. Recently seen family doctor and is on (generic prilosec) for ulcers?

My 5 year old daughter has had blood in her stool the last two times she has gone. Recently seen family doctor and is on (generic prilosec) for ulcers?

See below: If it was bright red blood in the stool, it is not due to ulcers and Prilosec is not needed. The blood in her stool is likely due to fissures or fragile rectal tissue that bled slightly-commonly associated with harder constipation stools. Another possiblility is a soy/milk protein intolerance-enterocolitis; but rare at 5 and more common in less than 1 yr olds. Ulcer-bleeding = black tarry stools. ...Read more

2 yo gets constipated. Today half was pebbles, half not. But a small brown mucous blob. Found tiny piece glass in stool yesterday. Related? No blood.

Stools: These are often a reflection of dietary intake, but can represent inflammatory changes in the colon. This sounds like a brief normal variation but if there is persistent mucous in the stool or a suggestion of blood you should have the baby seen by the pediatrician. Try using yogurt (unpasteurized). Good luck. ...Read more

Mucus w/ little red on thermometer after take 2 yo rectal. Found tiny piece glass in stool 4d ago, related? Don't know where glass from. No other blood

Get Checked: I agree with the other answer completely. It can be normal for children to eat non-food items (a behavior called pica). But eating glass can be dangerous. And as was mentioned, checking temperature indicates some other concern. Though likely nothing serious, it's best to have a pediatrician evaluate your child. ...Read more

2 yo constipated. Gave suppository. No stool. 20 min later took rectal temp. Felt warm. Had to take temp many x. Therm not working. As I was doing this brown mucus w/dot blood came out. Suppository?

OK unless recurring: Even if it is blood, a small amount, one event would not be anything to worry about. It could be due to the thermometer causing some mild trauma or constipation. It could also not even be blood. I would have it checked if it is recurring or if there is a larger amount of blood. ...Read more

Why does a two year old hold in her stool and cry out why holding it in?

Why does a two year old hold in her stool and cry out why holding it in?

It hurt. Make it soft: She is holding it in because one of her bowel movement must have hurt in the past. You need to give her a stool softener mineral oil, MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) etc and keep her having loose, soft bowel movements for 2 weeks. So soft that she can't hold it in. It will get messy at times. The softer the better. After she forgets that it hurts to go, then you can start backing off on the stool softeners. Not toofast. ...Read more
