Hi Lisa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

The presence of erythrocytes (red blood cells) in the stool can be caused by many possibilities, including:

food allergy or milk allergy
bleeding in the nipple (if your child is still drinking milk)
gastrointestinal bleeding
presence of hemorrhoids (hemorrhoids)

anal fissure (injury / tear in the anus)
gastrointestinal infections (eg salmonella or shigella infection)
inflammatory bowel disease


In order to be able to analyze the results of laboratory tests including the results of fecal examinations, the results of these examinations must always be combined with the clinical symptoms experienced by the child, food history, physical examination results, and other supporting examination results.


Allergy to food can indeed cause red blood cells in the stool, but as you can see above, there are many other possibilities. We recommend that you bring the results of the stool examination back to the doctor who asks for an examination for further analysis.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
