Poop Colors: The color of stool is not usually concerning, as it reflects a lot of things we eat. Dark black, red or white stools are the only colors that are worrisome. As far as the heart rate is concerned, a normal baby has a rapid heart beat. Is it fast for him ? If so, take him to see his doctor. ...Read more

What color is the stool color in a child with rotovirus?

What color is the stool color in a child with rotovirus?

Varies: The color depends on diet and bile output during the illness. I have seen blue poop from blue Popsicles or Gatorade. They can be almost clear mucous to brownish water, but very frequently are a beige/creamy white. The hallmark is the horrible smell that goes along with rotavirus - I can walk in a room and tell a baby in there has the illness. ...Read more

Hello im 19 and ive notice a change in my stool color should i be worried it is turning and dark brown color not black ?

Concern but no worry: The amount, color, frequency of stool varies with foods, speed of emptying of the GI tract, medications & supplements ingested, gut flora (unique for each individual), additives (like blood), subtractions (like absent bile), infection, inflammation, & other factors. If stool pattern has changed, is unusual for you, & the change persists, or is accompanied by other symptoms, see your doctor. ...Read more

Fecal impaction: You should see your primary doctor. Fecal impaction, constipation could be explanation for your symptoms. If you have bleeding ( when stool could be black/dark red) colonoscopy can help understand the source of bleeding. Cancer/cancer bleeding unlikely at age 21. Another test: stool for parasites. Thank you for question. ...Read more

Unlikely: Generally, black and tarry stools happen when there is cause of upper GI bleed. Here the hemoglobin undergoes chemical reaction leading to change in color. A common cause for this is ulcers. They can be caused by medications (advil (ibuprofen) or motrin) or infections (H. pylori). For now, I would suggest monitoring for other symptoms. It may be absolutely nothing because you have no other symptoms. ...Read more

Stool color is grey. Help! please?

Stool color is grey. Help! please?

Stop worrying: Stool color reflects what you've been eating: fatty or not fatty, high or low fiber, plant or animal, etc.Etc.. The two colors that worry me most are black (bleeding in the stomach) or red (bleeding in the intestines). If you feel good and there have been no changes in your health, relax. If you don't feel good and your health has changed, then stool color might be a clue. See your doctor. ...Read more
