Detailed Answer:


Thank you for your query.

Do you have pain while passing stools? Do you see blood in the stools? What medicine did you use?

Gummy motion is motion unformed stools with mucus in it. It is mainly due to giardiasis or amoebiasis infection. Largely seen in people who eat outside food.

I suggest you to get CBC blood test and stool microscopy to check for ova, eggs and cysts.

Once the results of the test come please send it to me here.

I hope it helps.

Take care.
