I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

Stool varies normally also in color. Whenever any medication is taken; the stool can have slight changes in the color, which is absolutely normal. A few light spots/edges does not indicate any abnormality or disease process. Nothing seems to be worrisome here.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
