I've never had this problem before or heard of it. I feel fine, am in good health, take no meds but yesterday and today my poop had blue mold on it. What is it and what should I do?

Brief Answer:
One instance has no significance

Detailed Answer:

I would not be worried if you have blue mold on the stool. What need to know is the smell, size, shape and not just the blue mold on normal color stool. If it recurs I would get a stool microscopy along with routine physical done.

Let me know if you have further concerns.
