Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Greetings,Thank you for your question. I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
How is his bowel habit?
Does he pass stool everyday?
How is his diet?
Is there any change?
Thank you for the input.White stool can occur when there is lack of bile.Bile secreted from the liver is stored in gall bladder to be released when food enters the gut or intestine.With the help of intestinal bacteria it gives the stool its normal color.In case of bowel infection or diarrhea bile can not mix well, stool can become white.This can occur from the diseases of liver & gallbladder like hepatitis or if there is any obstruction of biliary tract.It may also occur with medication, diet.As it occurred once, you can wait & watch.If the symptom continues, I would advise to consult doctor to have an examination and tests.I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating. Wish his healthy life.Regards.
