Hello

Sorry for the symptoms.

The red watery stool can be from indigestion along with beet root which gave the color red.

Other possibility is due to blood from infection which makes the stool watery.

Fresh blood in stool comes most commonly from the lower part of the gut near anus or rectum.

The causes can be hemorrhoid, polyp, fissure, inflammatory bowel diseases, diverticulitis, infection or from tumor.

Stool examination is needed to get the diagnosis.

If the symptoms persist, he should consult doctor as early as possible for examination and investigations to find out the cause and early start of treatment as it is necessary.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
