Black specks and red streaks in stool

Postby Rada » Thu Mar 15, 2018 7:12 pm

Good evening,

I have been experiencing red/orange spots/streaks in my stool for the past couple of weeks in addition to black specks. I was diagnosed with C-Diff around 2 months ago, however, I never went on antibiotics for the infection. I do not have diarrhea, altough, my stool is loose and greasy from time-to-time. My questions is as follows:
1) Would it be advisable for me to go on antibiotics for these symptoms even though I'm not having diarrhea?
2) Should I get checked for something more serious i.e. IBD.

Refer to my last post for more backstory.

We can't diagnose you. See a specialist, preferably a GI or an ID. Do not take any medications until you see a doc. Did a doctor advice you not to take an antibiotic for the c diff?

Best of luck to you. Let us know what happens.
