I have seen some kids who can't go to the restroom in time and their poops stain on their underwear. I would like to know what word I can use to describe this situation?


I'm probably going to regret this, but the vulgar and casual expression you are looking for is skid marks, the bane of laundry day.

    Rather than being vulgar, its a polite euphemism used by housewives/househusbands to discuss their laundry problems. Sep 15 '13 at 5:50

    Alternatively, a "racing stripe". Sep 15 '13 at 6:04
  • Adidas comes to mind

Encopresis is the medical term to describe it.

  • The adjective form is encopretic.

  • smartypants — a kid too smart for his/her pants
  • poopypants — a kid who either really has no control, or acts like one who has no control, over his/her digestive egress

I would say if there was poop in the underwear the one word I would use to describe them is stinky.
