The color of human bowels tends to be yellow to dark brown and is solid. This is related to the process of digestion of food in the digestive tract, where the dyes from bilirubin or bile dyes help digestion in the small intestine and form the color of feces.
When there is a change in color, either the reddish, black, or pale to white chapter indicates an abnormal digestive process, so it requires evaluation and medical examination to determine the cause.
Some of the conditions below can cause discoloration of the stool, namely:
1. reddish stool, indicating bleeding in the lower part of the digestion, where fresh red blood follows the stool or is mixed with stool, as in hemorrhoid patients, or digestive infections
2. blackish stool, showing the presence of injury or bleeding in upper digestion or due to the influence of the drug, such as in patients with stomach injury or patients taking blood-boosting vitamins
3. white or pale stool, can be caused by the presence of bile duct obstruction, so that food is not digested optimally, as in patients with gallbladder obstruction
Management of patients with indigestion and changes in color of the stool depends on the cause and the results obtained, ranging from antibiotics to surgery.
In connection with the case that you submit, there are complaints that you say blackish-colored CHAPTER, may be caused by stomach or digestive disorders that you may have experienced for a long time but have not felt. The habit of consuming spicy food, digestive infections or injury to the stomach or small intestine can trigger this complaint. If you take certain medications or vitamins it can also cause black stool.
While the presence of saliva accompanied by blood, may be caused by injury to the gums due to gum trauma or the oral cavity when you eat solid food or because of friction with a toothbrush. This can recover after a few minutes, so preventing friction and trauma to the oral cavity becomes important for preventing bleeding from the oral cavity.
However, all this needs to be done directly by the dentist and mouth doctor and internal medicine doctor related to all complaints that you feel. Usually with interviews and direct physical examination, doctors can find out the cause of the complaint you are feeling. However, if bleeding or black stool continues after a number of doctor's visits, then further examinations such as blood tests, ultrasound or endoscopy can be planned. Handling and care will be given according to the examination results obtained.
All you need to do during the treatment period is to avoid spicy foods, instant foods, and alcohol if you consume them to prevent discoloration of faeces. Use a soft toothbrush and be careful when brushing your teeth to prevent recurring bleeding.
