Kate asks: Dear Motherload, If I leave my son with no diapers (I am toilet training him. He is sixteen months old) and he urinates on his legs, do I have to wash him down every time? I cannot use wipes because he is allergic to them. Or will his urine on legs not harm him, and is wiping him with a...

Susan McGrath asks: My poop has changed twice lately. First, not too long after taking antibiotics, it started to hurt in my gut and that's how I knew I was going to poop. It hurt like bad gas pains. Slowly, that started to get better, but my poop was still a lot harder than before antibiotics....

Poop's Mommy asks: I have a 2-year old daughter and whenever she poops, it smells like moth balls! It is awful! I have only noticed it in the past month - does this signify that she is missing some vitamin or something in her diet ... or is she just a smelly pooper? Dear Poop's Mommy...

The Shit Volcano asks: I am visiting family who are health nuts. They insist on eating pretty much vegetarian (though I have caught the bastards sneaking out at night for a burger at Steak N' Shake) and there is no meat in the house. This means I am forced to eat vegetarian. As a teenager, I was...

Sharlene Asks: I have what is called colonic inertia or lack of motility of my colon. I also have the worst spastic colon, aka IBS. Now, without daily laxatives I just simply can't go for days. Even with laxatives, it might be only three times a week. My big questions is this: do you know of any...

SR Asks: I took a poop today. I always take a look at my creation. Today I saw something like fur intertwined in my poop. It looked fibrous -- not like something I ate, but like something that grew in my poop. Is that possible? I hope not... it had that algea-in-the-ocean look, but it was not green...

Ginny asks: Ever since I gave birth for the first time many years ago, most of the time after a bowel movement, I have to wipe and wipe and wipe and, later, I find I have to wipe some more.

Johnboy asks: If my rectum is, as the books say, about six inches long, how can I do pieces of poop so much longer than six inches? I laid out a 15" log yesterday (measured with toilet paper, 4" on a side). Beyond that, I do them a foot or so with some frequency. In addition, after the long piece,...

Michael W asks: Today I had more trouble that I probably ever have going to the bathroom. I had to strain really hard, and it just wouldn't come out.

Pickleberry asks: Hi. My husband has a mysterious lump near his anus. It is about a centemeter to the right. It is not red, not itchy, not painful, and has no visible pus or anything of the like. It's more like a lump under the skin. I am convinced that it's just a lipoma, and that the location is...
