Casey asks:

I have diarrhea and I think there are pieces of skin in my poop. I don't eat skin so I don't know how or why it's there. PLEASE HELP!!


Dear Casey,

It is common to see the skin of certain foods like tomatoes, apples, and corn kernels in your poop because these things do not get digested due to the high fiber content.

But are you referring to... HUMAN skin? Since I have never personally consumed a person's skin, and Jeffrey Dahmer is not available for me to question about this, I have no idea what that would even look like in one's poop.

I don't really know this for sure, and I haven't been able to find any documentation on the subject to back up my theory, but I think that human skin, if eaten, would probably be digested like animal fats and proteins, and therefore not appear in the poop in its original form, unlike the skins of plant products.

So what you are seeing is probably just fatty deposits that are commonly seen in diarrhea. At least I hope that is all it is. Maybe you should be seen by a sleep disorder specialist to make sure that you are not "sleep eating" things or people you don't know about. (Has anyone that doesn't "agree" with you gone missing lately?)

Thanks for asking Motherload!

This brings new meaning to the term 'shitting my guts out.'

My friend, I'm afraid you have YAID. (Your Ass Is Dissolving) Everything you eat turns to shit, and now you are too. Damn, I hate it when that happens.
Actually it is most likely mucus shreds or undigested food. If in doubt and it persists, you may want to consult a physician.

ADDENDUM: Oh, and by the way, if you are indeed shitting human flesh that you didn't (knowingly) consume beforehand...yeah...maybe it's time to see a doctor.

Yeah, I think we'd need a better description. Casey, do you eat a lot of bell peppers? Those peels are often visible; the orange and yellow ones could look like skin. Eaten any fajitas recently? Raw veggies?

I've heard of skinHEADs, but skinSHITs? Are they neonazis or neoshatzies? This is so confusing. I need to be medicated. Again.

Casey, in all seriousness, I agree with Motherload. I've seen this with myself--it's probably vegetable skins or something--their color can change when they go through your system sometimes. Also, SamDamnit and others get "lettuce lace" which is essentially the same thing.

The cellulose that makes up the cell wall of plant cells can't be digested and so it is passed. The skin obviously has to provide more support, so it has more indigestible material. Chances are this is all it is.

Flushy/Dufya/DF/(got other names for him?) remembers lots of things of that nature, yet he can't remember what he needs ti know for class, nor can he remember not to refer to himself in 3rd person. Flushy is glad to make you feel good, SamDamnit!.

Skinhead, shithead....a rose by any other name is still a fucking Nazi.

I wonder if it's possible that this person did indeed recently eat a salad or fajita like GGG suggested. Sometimes iceburg lettuce takes a skinlike appearance when it gives you the runs.

Can lettuce lace be used to trim a doily? Man, I wish my medication would kick in sometime soon - that word picture is just nasty.

Its probably the sloughed off lining of your intestinal tract/stomach. The body regularly renews the tract/stomach lining since it is contantly under attack by stomach acid, and whatever you decided would be a good idea to consume (haggis anyone?) and the old stuff ends up in the toilet.

Daphne, I agree on the nazi thing, but keep in mind that not all skinheads are nazis.

Mr. Coward, I should think the lettuce lace could be used to trim a dookie dooley, if you so desired. I would recommend wearing gloves when shat tatting.

I see you are right. There are homosexual skinheads, who by their sexual preferences, cannot be Nazis.

I stand corrected.

There are also Trads and SHARPS. They can all be rather thuggish, but I like the SHARPS. They tend to beat up the nazis.

I'm bald. I'm definitely NOT a nazi, does that make me a skin head, or just a chrome dome? I don't know what a trad is. This is confusing, guess I'll just go and shit some skin.

Daphne, I'm so surprised. You always stand up for the rights of all living creatures, so I have to ask.

Why do you hate roses so much? ;-)

It appears it's both, and it's ironic that I have a white rose bush on the side of the house next to the Gladioli.

Oh, Daph. I was refering to the "a rose by any other name is still a [flippin'] nazi" bit you said up there.
It was a bad attempt at humor.

I passed what looked like skin (actually looked like uncooked chittlin's)today...scared me to death!
It was also loooong, about 24 inches.
I picked it up with tissue, and studied it..BTW..it really didn't *smell* like shit....
No, it wasn't a worm/tapeworm, this looked completly different.

IF I recall correctly the intestinal lining is made up of Epithelial cells. Skin that's removed during certain activities, such as taking a dump perhaps. Maybe it's just the dead skin of your intestines.

Sorry Anonymous but no poop pictures are posted on poop report, we just talk about it. The original comment was posted six years ago anyway.

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on!
