What If There Was A White Squirmy Thing In My Poop
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.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

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
