To be honest, green stool in children or adults is usually not a cause for concern and does not demand any medical treatment. Many times, modifying the diet works to restore normal color of the stool. However, if this doesn't work and green defecation is accompanied by persistent abdominal pain and strange bowel pattern, it suggests intestinal issues. In such cases, taking medical assistance is necessary so as to find out the exact cause and as per diagnosis, take the required treatment at the earliest.
Bacteria e.coli and bacteria salmonella may cause green stool; however, the cases detected with the aforementioned causes are rare. You may be diagnosed with salmonella poisoning that is transferred into the system, through consumption of non-palatable dairy products or consuming meats that are not well cooked and remain more than partially raw. The presence of bacteria may cause food poisoning due to which symptoms of diarrhea may surface. Thus, green-colored feces could reflect food poisoning as a major cause.
Constipation is a condition that is characterized by difficult evacuation of the bowel due to hardening of stool. It is a common health problem that causes a host of distressing symptoms such as infrequent bowel movements, bloating, abdominal pain, feeling of incomplete evacuation of the bowel, etc. Since the fecal matter becomes very hard and dry, the lining of the rectum and anus may get damaged during bowel movement, thereby resulting in pain, bleeding, or hemorrhoids.
