Pediatrician 's  Response

Green and slimy stools with blood suggests a gut infection.
Blood in stools is usually seen in bacterial infections.

In dysentery, stools need not be watery. But they are usually associated with fever, poor feeding, pain in abdomen that presents as crying episodes in infants. In such a case, your kid might need antibiotics.

Erceflora is a probiotic that will help in reducing the frequency and duration of loose stools and more helpful in viral diarrhea.

Just keep a watch on feeding habits and activity of your kid. If you are breast feeding him, continue to breast feed him. Do not give him cow`s milk below 1 year of age. If he is on formula and continues to purge, he might need temporary cessation of normal formula.

You may visit the doctor again or repeat the stool examination if you are sure what you saw is blood in stools.

For viral diarrhea, adequate fluids and probiotics are sufficient.
For bacterial dysentery, antibiotics will be needed.
Hope my answer helps you.
