Smelly and loose stools, mucusy, constipation. Done blood work. What is going on?
My 2.5 year old has very smelly poop (musty) he will be constipated for a few days and then he has very loose stools and they can be gritty or mucusy. We have done a X-ray of his belly (showed mild constipation but not bad) and they did a bunch of blood work (not sure what all they ran but I know they ran a celiacs panel) and it all came back normal. Any ideas? Something is not right but where do we go now?
