Aspirin is from a different drug group as compared to ciprofloxacin. So, its use seems to be harmless unless you might feel that skin-peeling sensation again.

Blood and mucus in stool suggest fecal infection, for which coproculture, examination of feces for ova/stool and other ultrasound exams are needed.
