White Flakes In The Stool
Do black specs(like tiny pepper flakes) in the stool indicate blood even when the stool in a normal brown color?
Nah: Significant blood loss (more than 3-4 ounces of blood), especially from upper sources, e.g. Stomach, duodenum , small bowel, less likely from right colon, can give black, tarry stol, with a typically characteristic odor, often loose (blood is a laxative):melena (black). Entire stool would be black, not just individual spots. Likely from food, seeds. Iron pills, pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) can do also. ...Read more

My stools come out in very dark greenish black pebbles. What does this mean? I've had different color, texture, and floating and non float stools
Possibly melena?: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums... Persistent melena (without obvious cause) ; symptoms warrants md visit. ...Read more

White fluffy mucut, red blood. And small white dots in runny stool once a month what can this be?
Good question, but..: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Brisk bleeding warrants emergency care. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.G anorectal trauma), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read more

What could cause white specks in stool? They're very small, almost like seeds or bits of feta cheese. Rest of stool is brown.
Probably not feta: Feta cheese would not look the same coming out, but sesame and other small seeds do look almost identical in your stool. Otherwise unless you are sick in some way , having unintentional weight loss, blood in stool, then this is unlikely to be significant and almost certainly something you ate. ...Read more
