Pediatrician 's  Response
hello sir/madam,
I am highly concerned for your son having loose motions. Blood in loose motions indicate that your child is having dysentry. This is very well treated by the above mentioned drugs given by your doctor. As of now, 10 days have passed, and still there is bleeding in stool. So should go for a follow up examination by your doctor, also if necessary get examined by a pediatric surgeon, to rule out local condition which causes bleeding in the stool. Do not worry, your son will get well soon. Thank you
