burning, and white "stuff"
Lisa H. asks:
I have frequent soft stool and it causes a burning sensation in the rectum. Just now, I had white "stuff" mixed with fecal matter. I was wondering what the burning sensation was and the white "stuff" was? Thanks.
Thanks for the question.
If this is a new situation for you, you really should be taking this up with your doctor.
The white stuff is probably just mucus, but do get things checked out. Keep track of what you are eating while you are waiting the eternity before your appt, too. Make sure you are getting plenty of fiber each day.
Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.
Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.
Got a question for her?
