Hello again. I've got yet another stool problem. I'm unsure if its dietary or not though... First off, I have no pain whatsoever. No other weird symptoms either... just pale stools. I've been eating alot of soups though. Could this contribute to the color? Also, I just stopped taking Penicillin about a week ago. Might this contribute to it too?

Hi Lazy Lady,
Yes, your pale stool is probably due to the antibiotic since you're not having any other symptoms such as pain. If it continues after a couple weeks you should check with your doc. Stool is dark because it is the bile used to break down our foods. If it is light in color it means your liver, gallbladder and/or pancreas isn't working properly.
Please check with your doc if this continues.
