Question
Hi Doctor
I have clear yellow liquid coming out of my anus that smells very, very bad. This is happening from the past 3-4 weeks. I do smoke, drinks regularly almost 3-4 days a week and eat lot of non veg food.

Please provide your valuable help.

Regards

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
Assuming that you do not have any pain while passing stools and that you are not consuming stool softners for a long period of time suggests infection.
You need to get your stool sample examined.
1.Avoid alcoholic beverages.
2.High fiber diet.
3. Plenty of water.
4. A course of antibiotics(ciprofloxacin with metronidazole)
5.reduce the intake of non veg food for the time being especially red meat.
6. Avoid outside food articles.
I hope this answers your querry.

Thanks Doctor for your valuable inputs.
I don't have any pain while passing stools neither I am consuming any stool softners.
I do have acidity problem for which I am taking antacid. Does it has any relation with my problem?

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
Consuming antacids for a long period of time decreases the acidity of the stomach thereby increasing the incidence of gastrointestinal infections.
Therefore it is important that antacid therapy needs to be stopped when infective symptoms of the gut develop.
I hope this answers your querry.
