What causes redness in eyes and blood in stools?

Hi,

i have just returned from visiting my 22 year old daughter, who works on a cruise ship. she has had red eye complaints for about 4 months, She wears contact lenses, and changes them regularly. She also has had about 2 months of blood in and around her stools, with white spots like mozzarella cheese. she refuses to see a ship doctor and wants to wait for 2 months before she comes home. Could this be serious?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Blood in the stool may be due to Hemorrhoid, fissure, fistulas or polyps. Contact lens users are prone to infection of Pseudomonas, Acanthamoeba, and fungal infection.

Until examination is done, it is difficult to say what it is.

Avoid constipation by taking a high fiber diet and do regular exercise. Consult your ophthalmologist as early as possible.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
