  • infection. just generalized infection . only your dr can be certain if its anything she has to actually identify or if you just need a course of antibiotics

  • doing a quick basic med search, a green discharge can be the signs of liver failure or even gall bladder. the black is internal bleeding GET TO AN ER NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
