Question Antibiotics and Green Poop

LE finished her round of antibiotics two days ago. Of course, she had diarrhea during the course. The first day post Antibioditics she was still runny but the poop was green allergy poop? Today day 2 consistency is more regular but its still allergy green???

Can antibiotics turn poop green? Can it cause the body to have new allergies? Nothing in her diet has changed other than stopping antibiotics. Any ideas suggestions would be great J Thanks!

If it has an unusually bad smell, I'd have her checked for Clostridium difficile (C. diff for short). That bacteria can take over the gut after antibiotics. If it's getting back to normal but just green, I wouldn't worry but you could certainly consider giving her probiotics if you haven't already.

My mom had C. diff a few months ago after antibiotics and got pretty sick with it.

Thanks She is on probotics... I'm guessing she has a new allergy So I will start an elimination diet again and see what's developed

The green doesn't necessarily signify allergy. It means the poop is traveling fast. It can take 10 days for her stomach to recover after stopping antibiotics.

agree with the pp that green stool just means the transit time was too fast to allow time for the bile to be reabsorbed and it doesn't necessarily mean allergy or infection. Anything that increases the gut motility can cause green poop.
