    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I need advise from someone, my 2 1/2 girl has bloody stool and also hard stool. She does not has any fever or complaints of any pain but the blood in her stool really scares me
    ami_nix responded:
    It could just be surface damage from constipation but, I would still take her to the ER! Better safe than sorry.. Keep us posted!

    Roy Benaroch, MD responded:
    Blood after a hard stool is quite common in kids. You ought to take her to your pediatrician, during regular hours, to discuss the constipation and your long-term approach and to confirm that there is nothing else going on.

    Best of luck!
