White specks in otherwise normal stool, what this could be ?

Lately I have noticed White Specks in my stool. The first time I noticed them they looked almost like a portion of a grain of white rice peaking out of the stool. I just took a stool sample and there are less then last time, but they now look more like a white sesame seed (note I have not been eating sesame). I am wondering what this could be ? SM

Thanks for writing to us.
What you saw are most likely the cysts of the worms which are inhabiting your intestines. You need to get your stool examined for ova, cysts and parasites and get a treatment accordingly.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
