Hello doctor! I just woke up and had a red stool. I only ate 3 velvet cookies last night. This morning my stomach felt very acidic. Please help asap?

Likely the cookies: The cookies have a lot of red dye in them which can cause your stools to be reddish and may cause some stomach irritation. If you are not having severe of Abdominal pain or actual bleeding from your bottom then I recommend taking some Tums antacid and see how you do throughout the day!
