My 6 year old son has been playing with feces...

Just recently my 6 year old, soon to be 7,  has been slightly poohing himself at night. When comes down to the toilet we noticed that he has it on his hands and also near his mouth and face. I am guessing the face and mouth part is because he puts his hands in his mouth.  He is an incredibly bright and smart child, well liked and gets along well with everyone. It keeps happening night after night now and I am not sure what to do. I have spoken to him and tried to sort it out. He says he doesnt know why he does it, I just wonder if its because he is touching his bottom and getting it on there and also because he just cant be asked to stop what he is doing and come down stairs. Should I take him to a doctor and anything else anyone could tell me would be great?? I am seriously worried as he has never had a problem like this before.
