Diarrhea


Hi, Loose stools everyday, depending upon the duration and frequency and the time of the day or night, can have various causes. If theres is blood, mucus, fevers, wt loss or pain while defecating then you need to see your pcp/GI. Keeping a food chart to see a temporal co-relation to certain foods will help (esp with lactose intolerance). Blood work & stools studies will help for clarification.

Answered by:
Dr. Fernando Austin
Gastroenterology

Loose Stools


This degree of stool frequency is not normal. Variety of possible causes including lactose intolerance , gluten intolerance, Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative Colits, medication effect and malabsorption to name a few. See your doctor for full work-up. In the mean time, use a lactose free diet since it may help. Probiotics such as Align or Lactobacillus may be of benefit.

Is it possible to get chapped anus from loose stools and diarrhea. what can you do about it?

Yes


It is usually the wiping. Diarrhea can cause you to get hemorrhoids which are even more sensitive to wiping. First, fix the diarrhea. Second, use premoistened wipes, not dry toilet paper. If you can use a bidet, even better. If your symptoms persist, its time to go see your doctor and get some help!

Many possibilities


There are many possible causes to diarrhea. Infections are a common cause, such as from a bacterial infection (salmonella, shigella, etc), viral infection (i.e. "stomach flu"), or a parasitic infection (giardia, tapeworms, etc.) Additionally, other causes include inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's or ulcerative colitis), irritable bowel syndrome and others. Best to see your doctor for testing.

Many things


It could just be that her stomach is sensitive to stress and her diet. Oftentimes, there can be low level food allergies causing symptoms such as these. The most common food allergies are dairy and gluten also peanuts and certain fruit like strawberries, and citrus can cause problems as well. Another possibility could be a chronic infection like Giardia that needs treatment. Have her see her MD/DO

Diarrhea


This is not a sign of impending delivery. Something else is responsible, and likely to be a virus. The best sign of labor approaching is the fact that you are 36 weeks along. Have a great baby.
