What does it mean if a child has brown sticky poop and a sore bum after going to the toilet! ?

Intestinal issues: This depends on how long, and whether there is blood in the stool. If it's a short term issue, and everything else is normal, then it may just be a stomach virus, causing mild irritation. However, if there is blood, or it's a prolonged issue, then you should consult your doc immediately for evaluation and discussion. ...Read more

What does it mean when your poop is sticky with blood?

IBD: As a 20 yo, my first concern would be inflammatory bowel disease, especially ulcerative colitis. It's unlikely that this is a malignant condition, but you really need to be seen soon for GI evaluation. Don't delay, and good luck. ...Read more

What does it mean if a male is constipated and his urine is a brown color he has been dripping poop every now an then?

What does it mean if a male is constipated and his urine is a brown color he has been dripping poop every now an then?

Most likely: Constipation due to dehydration causing a dark concentrated urine as the body tries to avoid losing any more fluid. The dripping stool may be liquid stool seeping around a fecal impaction. You need to see a doctor to confirm and get proper treatment. Start by drinking lots of caffeine free/ alcohol free fluid like gatorade up to 120 ounces per day. ...Read more

Lately I have been very constipated and when I do poop it is often in chunks, very sticky, dark brown.Whats the chance I have chrons? my dad has it.

> than if dad didn't: While Family History of someone w/Crohn's disease is linked to greater risk in others in family, more often than not, it's a sporadic case, meaning there's no genetic link. Check out http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/crohns-disease/basics/causes/con-20032061. Current symptoms are not consistent w/Crohn's.

What does a darker sticky poop mean for newborn? I forgot what the GI doctor told me today. Something about more acid in stomach. Is that right?

What does a darker sticky poop mean for newborn? I forgot what the GI doctor told me today. Something about more acid in stomach. Is that right?

NORMAL: The GI tract of the baby is fully formed by 12-16 weeks. The baby swallow small amounts of amniotic fluid which contains some shed hair and surface cells.Small amounts of bile is made by the liver, which adds color to the poo. Enzymes in small amounts digest this debris, but baby is not supposed to stool until after birth. Then the poo is a sticky mess. Stomach acid starts forming after birth. ...Read more

What does it mean when stool in dark brown on the outside and light brown on the inside?

What does it mean when stool in dark brown on the outside and light brown on the inside?

It might..: It might be completely normal depending on what you ate. However, we would need to know what other symptoms you are presenting. If the stool turns black or has blood, mucus on it it would need further evaluation. If otherwise you are healthy I would just make sure that you eat plenty of fiber(fruits and vegetables), low fat diet in order to produce a healthy bowel movement. ...Read more

What does light brown stool mean? What can I add to my diet to make it darker? Thanks.

What does light brown stool mean? What can I add to my diet to make it darker? Thanks.

No Disease Here: This is one, not a condition or a disease. Your diet will change and at times you will absorb some foods differently. It is so bizarre that you keep asking this question today that i worry you may need to be evaluated by a psychiatrist. Light brown stool means nothing. One cannot choose the color of their stools. ...Read more
