3 year old passed what looked like a red bloody stool (ball), not a streak of blood. She had a normal bowel movement and then passed this. What could cause it and is it something to be concerned about?

Red color stool as you know is not normal.But color of the stool could be due to food that has eaten.Before thinking about illness try to look for this.Other then this if there is pain in abdomen,red stool regularly means more number of times,or fever needs medical attention.

You can give your child chandrakala ras 2 tab 2 times in a day uptil bleeding in stool stops.You need not worry about the issue it could be due to small ulcer in bowel or due to fissure.Also you have to add swadista virechan churna 1/2 table spoon at night before sleep.Do consult your doctor for piles if you suspect them,
