Seems to be normal.: The color of stool varies frequently and depends on the food eaten. The smell also varies on type of food eaten and the duration of digestion. Burning after bowel movements is a sign of soreness in the anal area usually from hard stools. If the symptoms are constant or associated with abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, or blood in stools, then don't worry about them.
