Really worried

Mucus is a normal secretion of the intestine for facilitating the movement of stool. Normally it gets absorbed and is not passed in the stool. But if the intestines are irritated due to virus, food, alcohol, parasite, etc, mucus would be passed. It does not denote anything serious.

Probiotics that are available without a prescription will help in early resolution.

I wish your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
