As I have said many times before on healthtap.
..No amount of bleeding from the rectum is normal or should be ignored. See either a colorectal surgeon or a good gastroenterologist and see them sooner rather than later. This needs to be properly evaluated, specially if you are over 50 or are at risk for colorectal cancer..

In brief: Pediatrician first

First the pediatrician after examination and evaluation will refer to right specialist if needed.
