Hello,

Thank you for using HealthcareMagic to post your health query.
I read your question thoroughly, reviewed the images and I understand your concern.

Mucus in the stool is a sign of bacterial infection, and it is confirmed if you also have any blood in the stool and/ fever.

My main recommendation, for now, is to drink small amounts of fluids but frequently.
If you have the feeling of hunger, just have a BRAT diet for now (Banana-apple-rice-toast), avoid milk because makes diarrhea worse, use a probiotic to stabilize the bowel and also to recover faster, and if you can manage use oral rehydration solution.

If the mucus in the stool continues tomorrow too, in case you have developed fever or blood in the stool, then that is the time when you should consider starting the antibiotics.

If worse or not better, I would recommend seeing a local physician and getting done a stool routine microscopic analysis to look into it further.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako
