I suffer from feacal incontinence because I have a constant flow of clear mucus from my bowel just like a running nose. Is the mucus caused by my diet?
Hi, I had this problem as well and sice I am taking Ultra Flora from Amipro (must be refrigerated) and was also diagnosed with lactose intolerance and wheat sensitivity, I am much much better and have changed my diet since. you can either take one capsule per day or if it is bad, you can take two per day. This product changed my stool from diarrhea to normal soft! I sincerely hope it will help you. Kind regards
I have a huge amount of mucus on and around my stools, also there was a thick sticky mucus just above my anal area this morning. I have had this before most days I get varying degrees of this. Please can you offer any advice for me. I am 5o female, non drinker non smoker and I eat well. Thank you
Hi - I had this problem so i went for a colonic irrigation. The hydrotherapist said the mucus is formed by my body as an intolenace to wheat, and by eating too much sugar. He gave me a course of pro-boitics (available from Boots / heath shop) and it has totally disappeared.
i'v been constipated for a few years now on and off, this morning i went to the toilet and opened my bowels, when wiping myself i kept noticing this mucus sticky stuff, i stood up to check bowl and the mucus stuff was all around my poo. its really sticky and quiet a large amount of it. should i be concerned? help?
Hi, I'm a 20 yearl old male and for about 2 years now (it might even be longer I can't recall not having this problem actually) I've been suffering with a sore, itchy anus. There has been a 'discharge' as well, sometimes it is a clear like liquid that won't stop, on bad days it has soaked through to my jeans. Other times it is a very pale yellow-green greasy mucus like build-up. It smells bad and has been very embarrasing for me, it also itches more when the mucus is there and sometimes that is unbearable. There is blood coming from my anus too but only after I pass a stool (I have checked my stool and it contains no blood). I'm too embarrased to go to my doctor could somebody please help me. Thank you.
These problms are more common than people think. No body talks about them though so people suffer in silence. Your doctor will be able to help.People go to doctor with These sorts of problems every week.
I would go to the doctor asap, you would be surprised what they see everyday. You are just a human body to them nothing to be embarrassed about. or go straight to A&E when its bad and be seen by someone there.Must get it checked out though.
My daughter is 3years old... has had chronic bowel problems since birth. (She had a Colidocal Cyst removed from her liver at 5 months which had 3/4 pint of fluid in!) She is so bright and intelligent but has really struggled with toilet training. She has always coughed up this thick gloopy, white mucus and was put on antibiotics from being approx 12 months. Sweat test came back negative. Consultant stopped antibiotics in Jan, thick mucus started again... tested it for cultures came back clear now they want to test for CF again. Help and advice please!!
Hi i had two sweat tests one was negative the last one posative. im 42 this year i hope your daughter is non Cf but i guess shes been so unwell you need answers. sputum maybe wouldnt show bugs so young? bowel stool is normaly sent away im sure ? i hope she picks up soon. avoid dairy food it makes me much worse! well i do have a little now and then..
Sorry to hear about your Daughter, it must be such a worry for you. Suffering with C.F. myself, you usually get horrible yellow to green coloured sticky phelgm, it's rarely white, well, from my experience anyway! I've always thought that white mucus is good, & not infected, but I'll leave the diagnosis up to the medical professionals! Let's hope the tests come back negative for C.F. & you find out what is wrong with your Daughter, so that she can be offered treatment, if required, very soon .. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, your Daughter & your Family ... :+)
I HAVE POLYES AND MY POO IS VERY HARD WITH A MUCUS ON IT I AM 71 YRS OLD
Hi, im seventeen. I am still a virgin. And currently, i have a green mucus color discharge when i wipe. And on my underwear, its smeared with some blood. I used to have what looked like a yeast infection 2 months ago. Cottage cheese and elastic clear discharge. I used yeast medication. 2 months after that yeast infection, i thought i had yeast again because the discharge was clear and elastic, and it was itchy I used yeast medication again. I also tried really hard to keep it dry down there. Now i have light green mucus discharge and blood on my undies after this infection/medication use. I haven't had my period yet either. I usually get it at the end if the month. Its been irregular a lot. What can i do to stop it? And what could it be? I am really worried.
I am having a mucus discharge when I pass wind is this normal?
no it is not normal...could have a digestive order and would be a good idea to see your doctor
i get the feeling that i have mucus builds up in my throat and it makes me feel like having to try to get it up but its always there more so before sex
I tend to get alot of clear mucus down there and sometime it can be uncommortable because of it. I just want to know if thats normal or if i should get it checked out.
