HI

THANKS FOR WRITING TO HEALTCAREMAGIC

stomach ache with presence of blood with mucus in the stool is indicative of infection and the dysentry may have to be treated with antibiotics

probiotics, antibiotics etc may help your child..........if the condition is not self limited
preventive measures include hand washing and proper covering of food items

try avoiding eating outside

hope this helps
take care
