When children have diarrhea they sometimes develop anal fissures that can be visible on the outside of the anus or just inside and not visible, but they will cause some blood streaks on the stool. If he feels ok and is eating well then you need not worry. On the other hand, if he begins having lots of blood mixed in the stool and especially with fever then he needs to be seen.
