What could cause pink feces?


Answer by  Travis404607 (3916)

Pink feces can be caused by a mix of blood in the stool. This can be caused by hemorrhoids, which can become inflamed and bleed into the stool. Gastroenteritis can also cause bleeding in some cases, but this is often accompanied by diarrhea. Some vitamin deficiencies can also cause stool discoloration.

Different colored feces could be caused by things like artificial coloring in foods or natural foods like beets, certain medications, or it is possible it could be blood, but that usually makes it turn dark, not pink. You should check with your doctor to be sure in case it is something serious.
