Answer: Causes of Blood in Stool Anal Fissure. If no diarrhea, most of these children have a small tear in the anus. This is called an anal fissure. Anal fissures usually are caused by passage of a large or hard stool. This is the cause in 90% of children with blood in the stools. Strep Skin Infection. A Strep skin infection around the anus can also cause blood-streaked stools. Bacterial Diarrhea. If also has bloody diarrhea, a gut bacterial infection may be the cause. Examples are Shigella, Salmonella, E.Coli 0157 or Campylobacter. Red, but not Blood. The things listed below can also cause red-colored stools that look like blood:Certain foods such as tomatoes or beetsCertain drinks such as red Kool-AidCertain medicines such as amoxicillin or omnicefAmount. Blood spreads rapidly and widely in water. Passing a stool with a few blood streaks often turns the toilet water pink. It doesn't mean a large blood loss. Food allergies also cause blood in stool.. change the pediatrician if the problem persists and get tested...
