Stool comes in a range of colours, and differences in colour could be due to dietary changes.
In rare cases, however, it may indicate a serious gastrointestinal or health condition. If you continue to have severe abdominal pain or discomfort even after passing stool and gas, get medical help immediately.
Consult a specialist at Gleneagles Hospital to seek an assessment and treatment. Call +65 6812 3770 for an appointment, or WhatsApp +65 8111 9777.
