I find black dots in my stool recently, sometimes it is as big as peppercorn,at times crushed,I'm not really eating anything colored but chicken mostl?
Black dots: Black pigment in stools can come from blood high up in the gastrointestinal tract, from taking iron supplements or vitamins containing iron, or from taking peptobismol. A simple stool test in your physicians office can test your stool sample for occult blood. If this is negative, I wouldn't worry about the black dots. ...Read more
Why does Metamucil make me stool kind of "stringy like"at times. Kind of strings together , i thought this would "soften" not be like icky silly putty?
Stringy stool: Stringy stool is a symptom with many causes, benign and not so benign. Metamucil itself doesn't usually cause stringy stool, but it may have unmasked this symptom. If it is pencil like and persists more than two weeks it may be a sign of luminal (phenobarbital) obstruction. Flat ribbon like stools can be seen in irritable bowel syndrome. If it persists, it should be evaluated further by your doctor. ...Read more

Is this new?: There could be many reasons why this is happening, and it could be just normal stools for you. An imbalance in one's gut bacteria can cause a change in consistency of the stool.

Stools: These are probable undigested or partially digested food fragments.

If only occasionally: If poop comes out like a string only occasionally, that is less worrisome, and may just be the consistency (hardness; water content) of the poop and the amount of relaxation of the anus (tight anus causes smaller diameter poop, if soft poop), at the moment of the bowel movement. But, if string-like poop happens often, one has to make sure there is not a cancer or blockage in the anus or rectum. ...Read more
I keep getting these brown seed like things in my feces. quite small and look like seeds from a apple? is this ok?
Seeds: Review your diet? Have your been eating a lot of apples? If not then it needs evaluation. Seeds from apples contain a compound called amygdalin, a compound which releases toxic cyanide This only happens if the tough outer coat is broken or the seed is crushed, so avoid ingesting the seeds. If intact seeds are noted in the feces it is not likely to be a problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

On Cleansing medication, purging and my faeces just like that of corn and I never ate corn at this moment in time. What could be those corn like, pls?
No idea either, but: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to your question. There is virtually no value to colon flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste" or for weight loss. There are few real health benefits, but sigificant unjustified risk. Don't use colonics please unless prescribed. ...Read more
What foods cause frequent soft stool, bad gas and irritated itchy bum hole? When I poop it feels like it doesn't all come out.
Many can: If you have a sensitivity or a frank allergy to particular foods you may readily notice the symptoms you describe.
