my 2-year old has been complaining of tommy ashes off and on

Customer Question

my 2-year old has been complaining of tommy ashes off and on for the passed few weeks and as advised by the phrmacist, i have administered an over the counter medicine Gaviscon. a few minutes ago she asked to go to the toilet and passed a tool which was partially very soft ( not runny) yet partially hard. My concern is that this tool had blood in it.
What should i do?. Note that she has been passing quite a it of wind since the symptoms started? Should she be seen by her GP?
