Give more fiber+H2O: Important details: ? weight gain, abdominal pain? frequency of bm's? If your child is happy, stooling regularly and seems healthy, then stool appearance is less important. Many children this age are picky and eat less veggies and fruits which can either cause a large, hard stool or pellets. Mucous glands are present in the rectum to lubricate defecation. See doctor if child seems ill. ...Read more

I have small kidney shaped things passing in my stool, black specs and stringy, foamy loose stools and constipation. What is it?

Do black specs(like tiny pepper flakes) in the stool indicate blood even when the stool in a normal brown color?

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

Stools: These are probable undigested or partially digested food fragments.

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

Burning after bowle movement. Little blood in stools. Mucus blood on tissue paper. Stools constintly charging from diarea to loose stools very gassy?

Should get evaulated: Being a 26 y/o female, it is likely that you have irritable bowel syndrome and with the frequent loose stools can cause significant anal/perianal irritation, at times bleeding from it. If you have been having symptoms for yrs, ibs is likley. If this is new, something else maybe causing your symptoms such as ulcerative colitis etc..I recommend consulting your doc for an eval. Good luck. ...Read more
