He has been complaining the past few days about a sore belly on thursday he dident go to school as he was complaining about a sore head and its not like him as he loves school. Well he as just had a bath and said his tummy hurts and he needs a poo when he had finished I wiped his bum and noticed some blood. His poo had blood in you could see it in the toilet. His poo was (tmi sorry)like hard grapes. What should I do ?
Fairly red he has just come upstairs and said he needs to o again so I asked him to do it on his sisters potty so I could check it out . He did one little one the size of a 5p coin but it still had mucus type blood in it.
As a general rule, if it is red then it's usually okay, a sign that it's fairly fresh blood and has been caused by straining etc. It's when it's dark blood (browner in colour) that there is usually more cause for concern. Hope he feels better in the morning.
