Is it a fresh blood in stool?


Customer: replied 10 days ago.
it looks quite fresh yes
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
not really a stool its more small ammounts of diarrhia, but dark red...
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
i had drunk some alcohol early and wondered if this could cause it

Thanks for the details

Bleeding from a stomach ulcer does not usually present with a fresh blood in stool

It present with black colored stool called malena

It seems you suffering from dysentry which is an infection of the intestine causing blood in stool and diarrhea

It requires treatment with antibiotic

If it persist then you will need further evaluation and a colonoscopy will be required

Please do let me know if you have any other question


Customer: replied 10 days ago.
constipation is that normal with this problem?
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
when it happened a few weeks it seemed to get better after a few days
Customer: replied 10 days ago.

In that case you do need to make an appointment as you require a stool analysis and also to have a local examination along with colonoscopy
