Brief Answer:
Need to get examined before starting medicine

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
At this age if there is blood in stools, even small amount, needs proper clinical examination.
There are two possibilities
1. Intusussception - This can be diagnosed by clinical examination and ultrasound abdomen.
2. Infection - this can be treated with antibiotics like normetrogyl, but only after clinical examination. Refrain from treating by yourself.
Dose would be around 2.5 ml twice daily.
Regards
Dr Arun
