Clear Liquid Comes Out Along With Feces?
Greetings doctor. When I pooped and the last time I saw it was like clear mucus but it’s just a little bit. why doctor? is it caused by the wind?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, besides mucus in the stool when defecating, are there any other complaints that you feel?
Under normal conditions, the mucosal lining of the airway wall will indeed produce mucus. This mucus is useful for smoothing passage of feces, while preventing injury to the mucosal walls, for example due to hard stools. This mucus, as long as the amount is small, and does not cause any complaints, is often not dangerous.
You need to be vigilant if mucus in your stools appear quite a lot and accompanied by other complaints, such as diarrhea, bloody stools, severe pain in the stomach or anus, lumps in the anus, vomiting, weight loss that is quite drastic, and so on. If this is the condition that you are experiencing, we recommend that you see yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. This condition may indicate some of the following diseases:
Anal injury, for example due to anal fissure or anal sex
Inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, such as gastroenteritis, dysentery, cholera, colitis, proctitis, inflammation of the intestine, irritable bowel syndrome
Malignancy in the digestive tract, such as colon cancer, rectal cancer, anal cancer
Intolerance, malabsorption, or food poisoning
Hemorrhoids (swollen veins in the anus or lower rectum)
Anal fistulas (abnormal channels that connect the anus to other organs, are common in people with anal abscesses), and so on
With a comprehensive doctor's examination, the cause of this complaint can usually be detected and given the right treatment. For now, you can go through the following steps:
Only consumption of food and drinks that are clean, processed well, not too spicy or contain excessive oil
Drink plenty of water
Don't make it a habit of resisting the urge to defecate
Avoid the habit of excessive anal sex
Do not also engage in risky sexual activities
Do not consume drugs carelessly
Hope this helps ...
