Q.

Blood in stools

My son 3 1/2 yrs old I sometimes see blood in his stools or in the pan>I also notice when this happens his stools are really big/diameter maybe 3cm.He does Not complain of pain or discomfort

Paediatrician

He may be constipated and tearing slightly as he passes stools. He will benefit from the use of a paediatric glycerine suppository used daily for a few days.

I would take him to the doctor immediately if I saw blood. I'm not sure whether the size is a problem, but I'm sure that the blood is.
