Skin In Stool
Dear doctors has anyone heard of 'skin' in stools. The pieces were about 4 inches long by 1inch. About 1/8 of an inch thick, clear in color?

3 days ago I have been vomiting and bad diarrhea, stomach cramps, and bad bloating, headaches and aches and pains, today just bloating, skin on stool?
Wait and see.: From your symptoms it seems that you had a stomach virus that is getting better. Only bloating is remaining. That should be gone in a couple of days. Wait and see. Make sure you take plenty of fluids. Skin on stools is a bit confusing symptom. There is no skin anywhere in the digestive tract. It has to be something else that you are confusing with skin. If not better in 2 days see a doctor. ...Read more
Unlikely: If you live in the USA and have not traveled, then tapeworms would be very unusual. The likelihood is that this is just something you ate which was only partially digested. If it does not recur and you have no other symptoms would ignore it. If it recurs, salvage it and take to your doctor to be examined professionally. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more

See a doctor: You describe so many symptoms that it very difficult to tell what is going on, especially without some type of time frame (i.e. How long these symptoms have been going on?) Rashes appearing on your body could be a sign of a serious reaction to something. You should be evaluated by a doctor. Seeing a rash is usually the most important diagnostic technique. ...Read more
I've lost 32 lbs over last 6 mos, w/out trying. I've been having upset stomach and now thin and/or liquid stools & skin rash. Is this sign of cancer?
Thyroid, autoimmune, celiac and vitamin def are normal but my hair is dry and thinning, skin is aging, pale, loose stools. Can it be low stomach acid?

Anxiety can express by physical symptoms-dry hair, changes in skin and loose stools.

? Dietary intake: Yellowing of the skin (jaundice) and white stools (acholic) would likely be due to failure of the liver and billiary system. This is seen in newborn infants with biliary atresia and these infants require a great deal of care requiring surgical procedures and finally, if they survive to that point, a liver transplant. White stool without jaundice - maybe diet - white food that is not digested? ...Read more
My daughter is 8years old. Her eating habits andpassing stool habits are not good. Because she does not eat properly so she always have pains in head.
Children's choices: At 8 yrs of age, what she eats is going to depend on what's available at home. If she makes "unhealthy" choices then the solution? Don't make them available. Don't buy foods you don't want her eating. Make fresh fruits and veggies available. If she's picky - find the things that she likes that are still good for her. Encourage her to try new things. Eat healthy yourself - be an example. ...Read more

Hi. I keep getting pieces of hard black pieces in my stool. The black outside is hard skin like with an orangish soft piece underneath. Is this blood?
It's more likely....: ...something you're eating that your digestive system can't absorb & is showing up intact in your stool. If you can identify what you're eating, eliminate it and no longer see this weird stuff in your stool, then you have your answer. If you can't, you need to see a doctor. A simple test can show if it's blood or not. Possible blood in the stool shouldn't be ignored! ...Read more

Bright red piece in/on stool. Neither toilet water nor paper was red. What are the chances this could be blood? Could it possibly be "skin" from food?
Needs evaluation pls: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Brisk bleeding warrants emergency care. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.g rectal trauma), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read more
When I have a soft stool I have to wipe perineum as there is feces there, not on vagina but the skin under. Always wipe front to back. Is this normal?
Yes, normal: It is important to remember to always wipe front to back. To avoid vaginal or urinary tract infections transmitted by germs in the feces, keep the perineal area very clear. Consider washing with soap and lots of water after having a bowel movement. Some women routinely shower after having had a bowel movement. ...Read more
Have leaned toward constipation for some time. Began using skin cream mostly on back for dryness and stools seemed to soften immediately. Coincidence?
Possibly: It is possible that the relaxation from the cream on your back helped relieve the constipation although this is not a standard remedy. Make certain you drink a lot of water, up to 8 glasses daily, eat a high fiber diet and exercise regularly to avoid constipation. If the problem ever recurs please follow it up. In the meantime schedule a general exam with a Family Doctor to be on the safe side. ...Read more
