Does a small bleeding tear inside anus when pooping constipated stool increase chance of catching disease from using public toilet (e.g. water splash?

I'm not sure...: ... that this specific problem has ever been studied in detail. However, any open wound is susceptible to infection, and certainly there are a lot of bacteria present both in that area of the body and in public toilets. If I had a perianal tear, I would try to avoid water splashing on it. You should see your doctor if the bleeding or pain are persistent . Good luck. ...Read more

Little white thread like things on mushy stool and on wipes. Look& feel like little rolled up  paper  but i don't use toilet paper I use wipes. Ideas?

Test: White threads in stool could be food remnants, mucus from the colon, or worms. A good place to start is to test the stool for worms and parasites. It can also be tested for occult blood and evidence of inflammation in the intestine (wbc, calprotectin, lactoferrin). Those tests in conjunction with a history and physical exam should yield some answers. ...Read more

Give more fiber+H2O: Important details: ? weight gain, abdominal pain? frequency of bm's? If your child is happy, stooling regularly and seems healthy, then stool appearance is less important. Many children this age are picky and eat less veggies and fruits which can either cause a large, hard stool or pellets. Mucous glands are present in the rectum to lubricate defecation. See doctor if child seems ill. ...Read more

Sometimes, particularly in youths, the condition is behavioral. Alternatively, your odor problem is skin-related or neurologically-based (olefactory mis-sense). What's doc say? ...Read more

No,: This may be related to high fiber in grits or fat and lactose content in cheese. Persistent diarrhea, especially with cramping and fever is more likely to be an infection. It is unlikely that this will have an impact on your pregnancy. Congratulations. ...Read more
