Actually, neither. The stool tends to be darker in color and the size of a normal movement, but softer/less-formed and sticky. The odor is not like anything food or body-related that I've ever smelled. It smells more like an industrial chemical or dye (I know that's a vague description). The only other thing Ive smelled that is remotely similar was the dye used to color a pair of blue jeans I used to own (at least I assume it was the dye). They smelled almost the same, except the smell was much weaker on the jeans.Incidentally, this has been happening less since my last course of antibiotics, so it may have been related to the bacterial overgrowth (although I'm still having symptoms, so go figure).
Is this soft/sticky stool light in color or popcorn sized? does the odor almost smell like those soft pretzels u buy at the mall?
