Question: I have apparently eaten something that is causing light colored stools and a burning sensation after they come out. I've been eating a lot of pineapple lately could that be the cause?

Brief Answer:
PINE APPLES COULD BE A CAUSE

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

Diet especially if contaminated and in excess can affect bowel habits.
Please take plenty of water in case the stools become loose and diarrhea develops so keep yourself well hydrated.
you may use metrogyl topically or take an anti allergic like loratidine for the burning sensation.
give it a little time and symptoms should subside meaning don't start empiric antibiotics and other meds immediately.
get a stool R/E done to see for any pathological infestation, blood , pus, parasites or others
treatment would depend on the results of stool R/E.

I have already submitted my question to you. Red rash sounds like my symptoms, though it is not Red unless rubbed, aggravated. Clear bumps that get larger, very itchy. I try not to scratch or rub, but the itching is intolerable.
