My daughter has blood in stool. Several days ago it had mucous. She says she has to go I put diaper on and either it's just blood. Or blood with poop?
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.
Small red spot in 2 yo diaper today. No blood in stool. Other day took rectal temp. Mucus w/ little red on it. Acting fine. Constipated often-worry?
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...
