After I take a dump, I usually see little white squirmy worm things in my poop. What could be causing this?

Parasites are likely: Thread worms, aka "pin worms" are the most likely answer. There are other worm-like parasites but most are pin worms. More common in children less common in adults, most likely in all ages. There are medications to rid your body of these parasites. They cause rectal discomfort and itching, can wake children at night when pin worms are most active. Stool samples confirm diagnosis. ...Read more

If your child has: (1) never been able to control her bowels & bladder for 6 mos., (2)low muscle tone in her legs & (3) ⬇ed sensation in her lower body parts, an uncommon possible cause for all 3 is caudal regression syndrome, congenital malformations of the lower spinal cord, vertebrae & sacrum (the triangular pelvic bone of five fused vertebrae).

My baby is 4 months old and strictly breastfed. Why was there a long, green, mucusy, stringy thing in her poop?

My baby is 4 months old and strictly breastfed. Why was there a long, green, mucusy, stringy thing in her poop?

Stool varies: Stool color, consistency etc. Varies with diet, hydration, viruses, etc. Granted the baby's diet hasn't changed, but sometimes the poop is effected by what mom eats. Sometimes it's a virus that turns stool green. The most important thing is that the baby continues to nurse/drink/void/stool well, and is acting normal. If everything else is fine, don't worry about a little green poop. ...Read more

My 1 yr old daughter's fart stinks beyond normal n her poop is semi-solid. Is it a thing to worry?

Yes and no: This could be as simple as an odd collection of bacteria in the kids intestine that make stinky gas to something worse. Kids with untreated cystic fibrosis do not make enough enzymes to digest their food & end up with gas that would clear a room. They would have failure to gain weight & other sx. Try feeding the kid some living culture yogurt to get better gut balance or discuss with your doc. ...Read more

Is person get tetanus if person eat cow poop or any thing like that if poop enter in your mouth or something like that plz tell thanx?

No: The Clostridium tetani bacterium will not enter the body thru the gastrointestinal tract. Nor will it grow in healthy tissue. It most often is the result of a deep penetrating injury such as stepping on a nail that's been outdoors and exposed to C. tetani spores that
that are ubiquitous in soil. Approximately 300, 000 to 500, 000 people die from tetanus yearly, mainly in undeveloped countries. ...Read more

What does brown string in poops indicate?

Need more info: If all of your poops are thin and stringy, you need to get checked. If you had only one poop that seemed to have something like a brown string but you are fine now, it is most likely something you ate.
