Have chronic pancreatitis having diarrhea with red blood coming out in plops w/sm amt. Bm and what look like tissue what could this be. Been 3 days?

Rectal bleeding: If the blood is bright red this generally indicates it is originating from the lower part of your bowel. It may not be related to your pancreatitis. Have your doctor exam you to see if there is a source for the bleeding. You may require a colonoscopy to find out the exact cause. All the best in getting this sorted out. Watch for low blood with persistent bleeding. ...Read more

My 4yr old has been vomiting w/diarrhea for 1 week+ we r seeing the dr in the am. What does severe dehydration look like? Can i wait until morning?

Behavior?: If he is acting normal, playing, etc., then can likely wait until am. If he just lays around, is listless, no energy, then no. If you gently pinch the skin on the back of his hand and lift it up/away from his hand, if it stays up there, like a little "tent, " then no. If in doubt, go to er. We would rather see ; send home than wish you were earlier. ...Read more

Im going to be 28 weeks this Wednesday. I have bad diarrhea Its a none stop thing. It look like when a new born goes poop for the1st.

Hospital: Recommend that you go go labor & delivery. It's very easy to get dehydrated in pregnancy especially when you have diarrhea. You should be evaluated by a physician in labor and delivery to ensure that baby is okay, that you're okay and that you're not dehydrated. Green poop, in and of itself, is likely nothing to be concerned about. ...Read more

I have had yellow mucousy diarrhea for about a month.  I have also had some things that look like bird eggs and sesame seeds in my stool.

Colitis: An inflammatory condition of the large bowel, rectum and anus must be evaluated to see if it is due to infection or non-infectious causes, and this will generally require full history, exam, possibly colonoscopy and an exam of your stools for cells, culture and ova and parasites at a minimum. This cannot be done on the internet. See a GI doctor. ...Read more

Flagy/cipro about 1 month ago for divertic. Diarrhea, no pain, ++mucous, today light green stools, look like guacamole. C-diff? do I need antibiotics

Flagy/cipro about 1 month ago for divertic. Diarrhea, no pain, ++mucous, today light green stools, look like guacamole.  C-diff? do I need antibiotics

Cdiff: Hello and welcome to HealthTap, I would suggest waiting for 2-3 days; if your symptoms fails to improve; let us know, will text you for C.Diff first. It is a little unlikely since Metronidazole/ flagel is the 1st line treatment for Cdiff and you were already taking it with Cipro (ciprofloxacin) when you had the diverticulitis. I hope it helps. Thank you ...Read more

My son gets diarrhea every time he eats any amount of apples, I'm inclined to think he has an intolerance, but have not heard of a reaction to just a few slices of an apple. He has seasonal allergies & chronic bumps on arms/legs look like pimples.

My son gets diarrhea every time he eats any amount of apples, I'm inclined to think he has an intolerance, but have not heard of a reaction to just a few slices of an apple. He has seasonal allergies & chronic bumps on arms/legs look like pimples.

Intolerance: Rather than having an allergic reaction to Apple's, I believe that his intestinal tract doesn't tolerate the skin of the Apple which is insoluble. Try peeling the Apple before feeding it to him. Chronic bumps in his skin may need a dermatologist's evaluation to determine whether they're an allergic reaction to something internal or external. An allergist may also be helpful in this regard. ...Read more

Get help 4 symptoms: There are lots of reasons for your distress & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." if pain with meals consider peptic (acid), biliary, or pancreatic disease. Accompanying bleeding or tenderness suggests inflammation, ischemia, or infection. A thorough exam will help tease out the cause & identify treatment. See your doc. ...Read more
