    My 2 1/2 year old Daughter has blood in her stool?
    perez125 posted:
    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!
