Welcome to the gastroenterology community! It might be hemorrhoids or an anal fissure or something worse. Are you having any constipation? What color is the blood? You really need to see a doctor about this, because it could be something serious.
I know mucus<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the stool is often a side effect of IBS. Not sure what else though. I had a colonoscopy and it was not that bad at all. I have had a ton of studies and tests done on me to try to figure out why I have chronic constipation/gas/stomache aches and bloating. When I had my colonoscopy they discovered I have a very long and very twisted colon which is a part of my problem.
At that time, I did hear of a virus going around that needed to be treated with an antibiotic. It involved diarhea with bloodandmucus<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the stool. I can't for the life of me remember the term (I will repost if I do) but you should certainly see the Dr. about it. It could be easily remedied. Hope your child feels better.
