ya he is probably tearing a little as it comes out since he is constipated. Constipation can cause him hemroids as well and that is VERY painful!!!! he needs to have more fiber incorporated in his diet. Also you may talk with a doctor about using a fiber supplement such as Benifiber. but best case scenario would b more fruits and veggies. For a quick fix prune juice or prunes themselves may work. They also make many yummy high fiber cereals.

A child over 5 should be able to wipe himself! If he is having large stools that is what is causing the blood. He may be taking meds that are causing constipation. Other changes he can make is stop drinking milk, limit milk products, increase fiber, eat high fiber cereals, and oatmeal. I have had digestive problems since I was a baby that started from my mother giving me too much milk.

You've already been given the advice I was going to offer, but since I'm here, I'll just reiterate what the other's have said. Red blood means that he is tearing due to the constipation. Watch his diet. Aim for less processed foods, and limit dairy. Go for high fiber--whole grains, beans, and fresh or dried fruit (like prunes)--and plenty of water. If his constipation continues after making dietary changes, make sure he is seen by his doctor.
