Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You need to go back to your doctor ASAP.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will most likely require further testing i.e. stool test and will most likely require an antibiotic.

If you cannot get to your doctor soon you should go to the emergency.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

Blood in stool especially when you are having diarrhea is something that requires further evaluation ASAP.
