Inflammation: Likely caused the previous symptoms in your baby and you resolved these by adjusting your diet resulting in a happy baby with orange stool and ongoing mucous. Orange color to the stool is a variant of normal and of no concern. It will take longer for the mucous to stop as the inflammation that caused the bloody stools has to heal. Have your pediatrician check to see that your baby is growing and gaining weight well and that there is no longer traces of blood in the stool. Rarely a baby will have an enterocolitis caused by milk proteins and if present there will be traces of blood in the stool not necessarily visible. This is unlikely if the baby is comfortable and thriving. If you would like to discuss this in more detail feel free to contact me though Concierge at www. Healthtap. Com/freisleben

Blood in stool: If your baby has not been checked by your pediatrician, please do so asap. If formula-fed, the most common cause is cow's milk allergy (regular formulas are cow-milk-based).
Another cause could be bacterial infection. Some constipated babies can develop anal fissures. Read more

This may be fixable: This is the time and behavior associate with colic that is common. No one really knows the cause but I believe there are many different causes given a young infant digestive tract. Stools sound normal. As a normal stage, fussy times begin between 3 to 6 weeks, resulting in a unconsololable baby between 6/9 pm of age. These episodes usually last for one Read more

11wk bottlefed baby had lots ' dark brownish' mucus/jelly in poo. Dr won't test as he seems well. Started last wk small bits blood now heavy mucus?

Your blood: The most likely thing is that it is your blood that he is consuming while breast feeding. If you have any soreness, cracking or irritation of your nipples, they can bleed while he is nursing and he can actually swallow a significant amount of blood from this. If he is thriving, not vomiting, and his poo is just colored, i'd look to you first. Read more

When I go poop the first drops mucus. Then after it has blood. If I still have to poop but it's just blood. 27 female?

Could be: Hemorrhoids. Depends on if you are straining a lot lately or sitting at job much of the time for instance and there is ana-rectal pain upon attempting bm's and excessive itching otherwise. If blood is spotting only and this sounds familiar try non medical counter measures e.g. Baby wipes to wipe, tucks, (witch hazel) whole veggies and fruits to gently soften stools etc. If no improvement see doc next week.

Constipation: Constipation is extremely common. When stools are very hard and difficult to have, it means that your child is constipated. I recommend miralax, (polyethylene glycol) or an off brand of the same thing, which is just a sugar that our bodies do not absorb. Give 1 cap full in 8 oz of fluid (water is fine) everyday. We want to stools to be mushy like applesauce so play with the dose, but give it everyday. Read more

I've been experiencing mucus when I poop, but lately it's been chunks of clear/whitish mucus. Coming out. No blood or discomfort. Should I worry?

Mucus on stool: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, & even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum. At the very least stool studies & probably a sigmoidoscopy should be considered, but a more extensive evaluation may be warranted. Read more

My boyfriend put alcohol in his rectum last night and now he's pooping mucus and blood; should I take him to the hospital? He said he's in pain

My boyfriend put alcohol in his rectum last night and now he's pooping mucus and blood; should I take him to the hospital? He said he's in pain

Yes yes: Alcohol is a drying agent that removes water from cells and used in pathology to process tissue obtained for biopsies. It kills the cells by replacing intracellular water. He may have done some serious damage to his rectum and at least caused sloughing of mucosal cells and bleeding and is at risk for infection and serious injury. Read more

See your doctor!: Pooping blood and mucus is not normal, and could signify some conditions which need treatment. Otherwise it could get worse. Inflammatory bowel diseases can produce diarrhea with blood and mucus like this. Please see your doctor as soon as possible. Be well. Read more

See a GI Doc: Not completely sure about what it going on, but it sounds like you need to see a GI doc. It could be anything from a severe food allergy in your gut to inflammatory bowel disease (which is more what it sounds like). Either way, you should see them sooner than later to get a diagnosis on what could be a serious health issue. Read more

See a GI doctor: It is not clear from your question whether you were treated with antibiotics, which would make c. Difficile colitis more likely, but this certainly sounds like an inflammatory condition of the large bowel and this needs urgent evaluation and diagnosis and then appropriate management. Please go soon and hope this will clear up quickly. Read more

Rectal bleeding: The combination of rectal bleeding, mucus production, and a sore abdomen are suspicious for the possibility of colitis. There are many potential reasons for colitis, and it needs to be sorted out by your physician. See your doctor or a gastroenterologist ASAP. Good luck. Read more
