Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn blood in stool, mucus in stool, narrower stools, cramping, nausea, diarrhea. Thanks for your help!!
Avatar n tn Me concern is the mucus I am seeing in her stool. There is a bunches of mucus the size of a quarter in her stool. Please advise me in what I should do.
Avatar n tn Female in mid-40's. For 2-3 wks I've had mucus 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.
Avatar n tn Inflammatory bowel disease is one possible cause of both blood and mucous in the stool. 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.
Avatar n tn Inflammatory bowel conditions such as IBS, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis too can cause mucus in stool. 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!
Avatar n tn Judy, pick up some probiotics and give them a try. Antibiotics can knock the good bacteria in your system for a loop and that can cause changes in 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.
Avatar f tn I have had red blood from anal area a few times and I have white and yellow mucus in my stool, 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.
Avatar m tn They can be detected by doctor during rectal examination. Small amount of mucus may be present in stool. Hemorrhoids don't cause symptoms like nausea or diarrhea, they are strictly local issue. Search for some pictures online.
Avatar f tn Today, same feeling, but the stool had white pieces mixed in. Not food pieces or mucus which is usually slimy. This was like white stool mixed in 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.
Avatar n tn I have found some strange objects in my stool 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.
Avatar n tn After a month and no luck with a barrage of antibiotics, I started having pain urinating and eventually bloody mucus 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn However, I am no longer taking any antibiotics and still see them periodically. I have had mucus in the stool 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...
Avatar m tn I am a 32 year old male and I have been having blood in my stool 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).
Avatar n tn Have you been on any antibiotics in 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.
Avatar n tn Further tests to consider would be a CT scan to evaluate for chronic pancreatitis, or stool 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.

Avatar f tn please people DO NOT take antibiotics they are what cause the illness in 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!
Avatar m tn Antibiotics can cause diarrhea in and of themselves as a side effect. Antibiotics can also disrupt the normal intestinal flora and cause you to allow a bacteria called Clostridium difficile to take over. You need to get cultured for this. It s a stool (fecal) culture. See your doctor (not the nurse) and ask to have this done. If it is positive they will actually have to treat you with another bacteria to get rid of it plus you will need to take probiotics.
174483 tn?1327629077 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 in with the stool which makes me think its not from the irritated area like i thought before,
Avatar n tn The use of antibiotics can severly skew the flora and it can result in violent changes in bowel habits. There are many good products on the market that include Culturelle, Digestive Advantage-IBS and FloraQ.
Avatar m tn 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 mucus in the stool. 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.
1045304 tn?1253385519 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?
684508 tn?1234920791 I suspect the mucus membrane has been irritated from the constant diarrhea and it can cause some streak-like bleed. Antibiotic can cause diarrhea.
Avatar n tn Are (were) you taking any antibiotics recently? Well, mucus is also in IBS (which explains nothing, I know). Mucus is also in 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?
Avatar n tn Like a yeast infection. Anyway, puss or mucus in your stool 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.
Avatar m tn not a crack pot idea but have you ever tried to look at what you drink? Somethings can cause this excessive mucus 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.
764939 tn?1234589366 Wormwood hardly helps, and can be toxic in higher amounts or when mixed with other dewormers. It is not medically recommended for a reason.
