Antibiotics can cause problems, I would try and sit tight and see what the results say.
Hello, Most of the breast-fed babies develop lactose intolerance which usually self corrects but not always if it is a cow milk or a formula milk "problem" or allergy/intolrance with some dietary ingredient. Most babies with milk allergy are allergic to cow’s milk protein, while others are allergic to soy protein, and some to both. Breast-fed infants normally have stools that look like watery, yellow cottage cheese.
Female <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> mid-40's. For 2-3 wks I've had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> and/or blood when I go to the bathroom. Many times I don't pass any stool, just globs of mucus and blood clots. First had more mucus, now more blood. I have had external hemorrhoids in the past but have not had a flare for a yr and half but have never experienced bleeding, only inflammation. I've read that bleeding hemorrhoids usually lasts a few days at a time, not wks.
inflammatory bowel disease is one possible cause of both blood and mucous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span>. Diverticulosis can also be a possibility. Having blood in the stool is not normal, and he needs to be looked at again by another doctor for treatment. good luck.
inflammatory bowel conditions such as IBS, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis too can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span>. Since you feel nausea, an inflammatory bowel disease or severe acidity should be ruled out. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Judy, pick up some probiotics and give them a try. Antibiotics can knock the good bacteria <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your system for a loop and that can cause changes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> bowel functions. Try something like Culturelle and finish out the whole pack. Take the probiotics at LEAST 2-3 hours after taking any antibiotics, if you've still taking them.
I have had red blood from anal area a few times and I have white and yellow <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span>, sometimes dull orange. I also have what appears to be dead tissue in my stool, sometimes I pass only this dead tissue with mucus (no actual stool), my stools are pencil thin about a third of the time, and often I find that I have long strings of dead tissue with thin stool twisted around it.
They can be detected by doctor during rectal examination. Small amount of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> may be present <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span>. Hemorrhoids don't cause symptoms like nausea or diarrhea, they are strictly local issue. Search for some pictures online.
Today, same feeling, but the stool had white pieces mixed in. Not food pieces or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> which is usually slimy. This was like white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> mixed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> with the normal stool. I am going in to see the GI today, but I am freaking out thinking I have pancreatic cancer or something. Would something have shown up on the CT scan? If its not totally white, is that less concerning. I'm freaking out and can't find any good news on the internet. Please advise me on possible causes.
I have found some strange objects <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> and my doctors have been unable to figure out what they are. The first is a skin-like objects (1 inches long x 1/2 inch wide). The color is a translucent brown. On this skin is a hardened brownish object about the size of a seasame seed, it seems attached. Usually this skin is folded up in my stool (which is a lot smaller than normal). I have also seen white objects, again about the size of seasame seeds, there are a lot of them.
After a month and no luck with a barrage of antibiotics, I started having pain urinating and eventually bloody <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> coming out when I urinated accompanied by sharp shooting pains. I went to the hospital and after getting blood work, urine and stool culture - I was told I did not have a bacterial infection. They wanted to do some further tests, but considering the conditions of the hospital where I was - I decided it would be better not to.
well now im gonna move towards a bacterial infection of some sort, salmonella, C-diff(clostridium difficile), or E.Coli... however there are other causes of this...what color of the mucus? it could be IBS or some sort of IBD(crohns ulceratice colitis)... another possibility is diverticulitis(an infection of the diverticula of the intestines) if i would you i would see a doctor to ensure nothing serious is going on.... how often does the mucus appear...on every BM? any blood in stool?
Have you been on any antibiotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the past couple of months?? That can cause colitis. There's a million possibilities. I just came back from my doc's again today, and she's promising me that i don't have colon cancer. My doctor told me that she's had a lot of patients my age come in with bloody stool, and its just stress or diet. I'm trying hard to believe it. My dads friend has had blood in her stool for six months, and there is NOTHinG wrong with her, every test is normal.
However, I am no longer taking any antibiotics and still see them periodically. I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> for a long time, but I have many food intolerances, however, recently, I have noticed a narrowing of the stool. On one day, the stool generally starts out at a normal width, but end in a narrowing, squared, thin form, on another day, it could be fairly "normal", and another day, marble size balls that are fairly compact. There is no history of colon cancer in my family...
I am a 32 year old male and I have been having blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> for about 3 months. It started when I began my new job. I had a very easy desk job before, and my only exercise was from 40 minutes a day in the gym. After this job began, a week later I notice a pink stripe down the side of my bowel movement. I began going more regularly too, someone said this was from the increase in activity (constant heavy lifting and running around).
Further tests to consider would be a CT scan to evaluate for chronic pancreatitis, or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> tests to evaluate for fat malabsoprtion - each which can cause mucous in the stool. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.

please people DO NOT take antibiotics they are what cause the illness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the first place! yes doctors say there is "no cure" and you have to "learn to live with your disease" well thats all bs they just want to drill all that into your head but the truth is if you want to get cured you CAN!
The use of antibiotics can severly skew the flora and it can result <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> violent changes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> bowel habits. There are many good products on the market that include Culturelle, Digestive Advantage-IBS and FloraQ.
Hello ladies, well i have a little question, DD had regular bowel movements yesterday, but this morning she had diarreah twice, and in both diapers there was blood, the first it was only a little, so i figured her rear was a little irritated, but the second had more, not full of blood, but enough for me to call the doctor, she has an appointment tommorrow, but i was curious what this could be, its mixed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> which makes me think its not from the irritated area like i thought before,
Are (were) you taking any antibiotics recently? Well, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> is also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> IBS (which explains nothing, I know). <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> is also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> colonic polyps. The only way of diagnosing polyps is colonoscopy. I would recommend a hemoccult test for blood in the stool and maybe colonoscopy. Anyone had polyps in your family?
Antibiotics can be irritating to the GI tract. And cause nausea sometimes, and occasionally vomiting. Some dogs are prone to this side effect, others less so. But did you say your dog started with some vomiting before he had the antibiotic? And that the reason for the surgery(and antibiotic) in the first place was because he started vomiting? And it was found he had an enlarged bowel?
I havent eaten tomatoes/red peppers etc in the last couple of days so that's what I'm assuming it is... Also, a few days ago, I bled quite a lot, and had what looked like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span>. I also remember my doc telling me to look out for black stools. I'm confused because when my stool isnt loose, it does have black (or dark brown) parts to it but its not all black.
I suspect the mucus membrane has been irritated from the constant diarrhea and it can cause some streak-like bleed. Antibiotic can cause diarrhea.
Like a yeast infection. Anyway, puss or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> can be a sign of a bacterial infection or sometimes it can be from constipation. Sometimes the antibiotics will not only kill off bad bacteria but good bacteria and cause or prolong an existing infection. I have read that when when this happens, it will usually balance out on its own over time. I wouldn't worry too much, but I would still call my dr and let him/her know and see what they want to do about it.
not a crack pot idea but have you ever tried to look at what you drink? Somethings can cause this excessive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> build up such as soda or milk. You could also try a honey lemon hot tea this may help. I am by no means a doctor but would love to try to help. Let me know the outcome of everything and keep me posted.
It's making it worse. Last week there was a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the diarrhea. I have lost weight but probably since I'm not eating since I'm scared of what will happen if I do. I've lost about 7 pounds in the last 2 months. What do you think could cause gas, diarrhea with mucus, and loose stools? I get nervous when I see a mention of HIV. Is HIV normally associated with just these symptoms? I don't have a rash or high fever, haven't thrown up.
Saw a gastro doctor as I was having constipation, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> and blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stool</span> and was becoming quite concerned. He started me out on medication for colitis, altogether tried 3 different ones which all made no difference, while I waited for the date of my colonoscopy to arrive. The day arrived, results were, in the doctors words "you have a picture perfect colon." Proceeded to have an ultrasound and an upper endoscopy which also came back perfect.
