    (graphic) Clear white substance in stool?

    Hi all,

    I had pretty intense cramps during an Ivermectin treatment for Rosacea last week. Ever since, I noticed white filaments in two successive bowel movements.

    Have any of you ever read literature describing something like this?

    At first I thought it was some sort of intestinal mucus, but it does not fit the pictures I see online. I'm wondering if the Ivermectin could have nuked some sort of parasite in my GI track.

    Weirdly enough, I typically tend to be on the IBS-D side of the spectrum, but I had perfect stools for the last few days. Well, except the white thing. The cramps are also subsiding to almost none.

    Please let me know if you know what it is.

    More than likely what you saw was fat deposits from your digestive tract in your stool...similar to mucus, its actually fat from the foods you eat. I would check with the prescribing doctor to be sure!
