The answer depends on your health and how you react to your stool.

Runny noses are usually more common in adults and can affect your overall quality of life, including how you feel when you sit and walk.

Runners have to stop their stool to urinate and can feel bloated and sore.

The other side effects are bloating, constipation and diarrhea.

If you have runny noses, you probably shouldn’t try to avoid stool altogether.

Your doctor might recommend a stool cleanser to help get rid of it.
