Not streak just a streak of blood

It could be due to constipation, uti, kidney infection among other things.

You will need to see your GP quickly even if your child isn't showing signs of pain when using the bathroom as kidney infections can escalate very quickly.

Glad to hear you will see a dr tomorrow. Is it bright red blood? Likely to be constipation or a small tear etc if it's fresh blood but you do need to get it checked out.

Hope it all works out ok flowers

He hasn't eaten beetroot recently? As that can have very alarming effects, looking exactly like blood.

Yes it was bright red but can't make it out fresh or not .Beetroot .No not very fond of Beetroot but recently he has started eating a lot a nursery do thinking he might have picked up some infection from there although I really doubt that since nursery is quite clean ...

Bright red generally equals fresh.

Sounds like a bit of constipation but best checked. Dr will check for you
