Hi I am Dr.kadhir,
At first it is important to know it is blood that causing the red color as various food and medicines can give a bloody appearance. Hematochezia
( blood in stools) could be due to a minor rectal ulcer to some serious conditions like chron's disease. It is important to take a focused history and detailed examination is most important in deriving a diagnosis.
History of weight loss
, faltering of growth, abdominal pain
, loss of appetite, jaundice
all indicates some serious problem.
Based on the history given by you the 2 important conditions that can have bloody loose stools with or without enlarged liver are infection ( eg: amebiasis
) and chrons disease but conditions like liver diseases should also be ruled out.
I can reassure you that most of these conditions have good treatment.
I hope that i have cleared some of your doubts. Thank you for the consultation in health care magic.
