Hi Gnava,
Welcome back to Healthcare Magic Physician's Desk!
Your nephew has got truly altered bowel habits.
when his bowel is empty he is just passing the gas and the mucus because there is no solids due to preceding loose bowel motions.
You should get his stool examination and if possible a colonoscopy as well.
He might be having an inflammatory bowel disease or a chronic infection.
Wish you a great health!

Dear Gnava, hello.
Your nephew might be suffering from infection of the intestines and needs antibiotic and antiamoebic therapy. White foam is the mucus due to the inflammation of the intestine and will be ok after proper treatment.
Also get stool examined for Routine/ Microscopic and for Occult blood.
Hope this advice is useful to you.
