What causes black and white specs in stools, skin lesions and blotchy patches?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...my 3 children and I have had strange symptoms for over 4 months such as black specs and also white- transparent oval shaped things in bowel movement. There is occasional red- orange forms present as well. Slightly larger than pepper pieces are found stuck to skin on body, normally around feet, hands, genital region, etc. Skin lesions randomly occur with accompanying irritation, stinging sensation, itch, and burn. Numbness, swelling, and discoloration of hands, blotchy red patches of skin come and go. Recently I have been diagnosed with severe iron deficiency anemia, blood count of 8, prolapsed cervix. I am also losing hair and have chronic fatigue and weakness. I am just a 27 year old mom of three. Also, I recently discovered mold like substance with foul odor caked underneath washing machine, and various regions of walls in house have small discolred dots, line marks or substance on them. Do you have any idea what type of condition we suffer from? Thank you, your help is greatly appreciated.
