My two year old daughter has been continuously very cranky, and upset. She has been having bright yellow diarrhea, but no other signs. What is this?

My two year old daughter has been continuously very cranky, and upset. She has been having bright yellow diarrhea, but no other signs. What is this?

Be seen: It is likely a viral gastroenteritis, but possibly something else. She should be seen by her physician for an exam and opinion. However, there are not any meds that are necessarily needed for a child her age, as she is still in diapers, and will clear the virus faster if you allow it to run its course. Keep her hydrated as that is generally what causes hospitalization needs. ...Read more

For the last 24 hours, I have been having bad cramps, followed by diarrhea that is bright yellow (like acid). It hurts and burns. What should I do?

For the last 24 hours, I have been having bad cramps, followed by diarrhea that is bright yellow (like acid). It hurts and burns. What should I do?

Not acid, like bile: Plugging up diarrhea will not cure an infection, fix an inflammatory process, improve an ischemic gut, or correct a functional issue. Medical evaluation is recommended appropriate to the duration of your symptoms, associations (bleeding, weight loss, pain, vomiting), as well as your other medical co-morbidities. Call your doctor please & get checked. A little Imodium may calm things down 4 now. ...Read more

What may cause yellow diarrhea and yellow bile in vomiting?

What may cause yellow diarrhea and yellow bile in vomiting?

Yellow GI fluids: Both the yellow diarrhea and the yellow bile color in vomitus are due to the same chemical, bile, which is produced by the liver. Normally you never see it in the stomach because normal eating keeps it moving down the GI tract. But when you vomit, and if you're stomach has no food, then all there is to see is the bile. When you're not eating regularly, the same bile will make your stool yellow. ...Read more

I am having bright yellow diarrhea and my stomach hurts at the same time. What could it be.

Cramps/diarrhea: There is often cramping with diarrhea. The color of the diarrhea is not alarming. If it contained blood OT a bad odor then yes. Check to see if anyone else has the same thing. Think about any fast food you may have eaten or any antibiotics taken recently. Keep a record of what you eat. If this lasts for longer than 2 weeks see you doctor for an exam and further studies. ...Read more
