Kelsey, Very informative post this week! The most common causes of rectal bleeding can be anal fissures which are caused by a cut or tear in the anal lining that develop when passing a large or hard stool. Symptoms include grunting, pain, straining during a bowel movement or bright red blood seen when wiping. Milk or soy intolerances can cause bloody stools and include other symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, irritability, poor weight gain and eczema.
