Vomiting in a six week old infant needs to be evaluated by a doctor promptly. It could be something common such as gastroesophageal reflux disease or it could be something more serious such as pyloric stenosis (a 6 week old boy is the prime age and gender for this). Either way, you should call his doctor and have him seen as soon as possible. Once he has been examined, your doctor will be able to give appropriate suggestions on how to treat him. Good luck!

Green stool color

The color 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. Consider what you ate in the last few days, but if greenish color is unusual for you & persists or is accompanied by other symptoms, see your doctor.

I noticed a little pea size bubble by my anus hole and when i wipe or pat dry it burns what could this be?

Several things

Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

I have a pea sized lump on the right side if my anus under the skim. No visible lump but hurts if I put pressure on it. What is it??

Answered by:

It could be

perirectal abscess, which might require drainage under anesthesia. If it is only in the skin, it is more likely a perianal abscess or an infected cyst. If you are having pain, fatigue, and abdominal pain, it is best to have a doctor look at it.

I saw a reddish pea sized Speck in my stool. Could it be blood? It seems to be embedded in the stool. How would blood look like in stool?

Probably not

Blood in the stool would color the stool, not stand out as a 'speck'. It is more likely that you saw a piece of undigested food.

Not normal

Please see your doctor for an examination. You might have an infection or some other type of issue. I know it can be embarrassing to have a doctor look at such a private place, but it is important. Good luck.
