Doctor insights on:
Froth In Stool
Having semi-solid stool for some time now. Can see fuzz/froth floating above the fecal matter, particularly more when a lot of wind accompanies stool.
My 3.5 year old has had loose gassy stools with mucus for 8 weeks. Needing to go to the toilet 5-7 times. He now has frothy white mucus.
See his doctor: He might have parasitic infestation of his bowels, he will need stool analysis and given proper medication and he will be fine, good luck
Blood in stool. Kinda frothy feces. Also some loose ones. Overate wheat this week. Please explain.?
Bleeding: No amount of bleeding is normal and should be checked out properly. Excess fiber can give you dirrhea or constipation, depending on your fluid intake. Both can cause hemorrhoids to bleed, but that diagnosis should be left to the doctor to confirm or rule out other explanations for your bleeding. Do not self diagnose rectal bleeding!See 1 more doctor answer
My grandchild, 3month old. Her stool analysis shows cyst e.H ++, pus cells 3 -5hpf, bacteria+.Child had frothy motion for aweek?
Probably infection: I'm not clear what your results are based on your question. (cyst eh++ is not typical notation for stool results). If she has white blood cells, and unusual stools, she has either an infection or some type of inflammation, or both. She should follow up with her doctor on the results.
No other disease?: Each person with constipation needs to be sure there is no other disease causing it. If constipation is just due to slow movement of the food and poop through the gut, then the things to try are vegetables, water, prune juice, prunes, fiber+water, Miralax, (polyethylene glycol) Senokot or other senna, milk of magnesia, other laxatives... A doctor can evaluate and prescribe helpful medication too. Exercise also helps.
Diet, blood: Stool will vary from light to dark depending upon the diet. Diets rich is red meat for instance will darken the stool color. If there is GI bleeding then the stool may become black. This requires evaluation by your gastoenterlogist as the source of the bleeding must be discovered and corrected.
Bile: The greenish color in stool is the breakdown product of the bile when it has not been in the gut long enough to go through a change to yellowish or brown. It is normal as is the loose consistency. Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product. I'd ignore the whole issue.
