My 2 year old child has yellow pasty poop. What is the cause for this? He had a stomach virus recently, but he had this several weeks ago as well for about 2-3 days. It went away. And it just came back again.
Good news! The only stool colors we get really concerned about are red (blood from colon), black (blood from small intestine or stomach), or white (liver is not working well). Colors such as brown, yellow, orange, green, blue, or even purple (beets) can all be normal and usually associated with diet. If he has a persistent change in his stool habits, you should contact his physician since this could be a sign of an underlying disorder, but a one-time strange stool that is not red, black or white is usually of no concern.
If he is having continued diarrhea, or a change in color unrelated to diet, give his doctor a call. They may want to check his stool for bacterial, viruses, parasites, and other things to give clues as to why he is having this ongoing problem. Good luck! ...Read more

Hard to tell: Most of the time minor "food poisoning" is from pre-formed staph toxin in food. While you may have sudden onset severe symptoms, they resolve fairly quickly. Viruses may also present and resolve quickly. If you are felling better, I would not worry about the cause. If you are not better or have fevers, blood in your stool, or other severe symptoms, I would seek care. ...Read more

I've had a bad case of the stomach flu for past few days and now my stool is yellow to pale orange. Should I be concerned?
Virus: If this is a viral intestinal tract infection causing diarrhea or loose stools, the color change is to be expected due to more rapid transit of stools through the intestinal tract and would be a temporary situation. Disorders of liver, pancreas or gall bladder can also cause these color changes. If bm's don't revert to normal after several days, consult your physician or gastroenterologist. ...Read more
