Proctologist: Your symptoms are suggestive of an anal fissure, and because of the long duration of your symptoms,I recommend that you see a proctologist for diagnosis and proper treatment. You need such a specialist to ensure proper and complete healing of such a chronic process.

Is it normal for my infant's bowel movements to be lightly colored?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson

Yes: Yes. Normally infant's bowel movements range from a light yellow or green to brown in color. This is quite dependent on the diet at the time. Once solid food is being introduced the color can vary day to day. If the stool is very pale (very light yellow to white) with any consistency it is important to have your infant examined by your pediatrician.

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Numbers are numbers: Lab results are numbers, and numbers are just numbers. They have little meaning without looking at the whole person. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, and red blood cell counts means blood cells are not being made fast enough, are being lost (through bleeding), are being broken up, or any combination of such problems. Glucose goes up from increased body stress, inadequate insulin, I.V. Glucose, etc....
