  • If it is red then its fresh and from a tear. It could have been a hard stool and he got a little tear or something and it will be fine. If it is dark then you should see a dr. because it could be coming from the stomach or somewhere higher.

  • just keep an eye on it.. if it gets worse then i'd call the dr but a little can be normal/okay.

  • My son has blood in his stool and it was gastroenteritis, he had to be put on meds.

  • could be quite a few things most of them not a big deal I would go to the doc.
