Bowel Movements a Huge issue with people who suffer from Anxiety and Panic also Depression due to how we eat and drink also exercise and stress....
IBS is common with these so many of us have it..
Coloring of stool can range from sometimes white to dark brown also black... greens , reds and yellows and orange... like a Rainbow of Skittles.. true..
What we don't digest well we have to be rid of and of course that is the bowels and the urine.. now seeing Dark Red or a Tar looking color which would be Black is a sign that you need to be checked but once we age or sometimes at any age we do need exams and testing... Bright Red is usually from straining when having a bowel movement also yes those lovely Hemi's as I call them some internal some external.. they hurt worse then having a baby!!! well for me..
You can use baby wipes and some creams for those.
Do eat some fiber and drink plenty of water stay away from food that has added food coloring... for me if I eat Fruity Pebbles wow I am not kidding its colorful!!
I worked in a nursing home and this whole bowel movement issue never ends at any age.. we have to not let it take over and scare ourselves just know what we need to do is eat better and stress less.... easy Huh ? lol
Take care and Hope you all feel better.!!
