There are various causes for mucus in stools. The possibilities are -
- an intestinal infection
- food allergies and sensitivity to particular food
- rare causes are diseases of digestive system like ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, crohn's disease etc.
To diagnose the digestive problems you need to consult a gastroenterologist for a detailed evaluation and if need be investigations. But most cases of mucus in stools improve by increasing fluid intake and food demulcents containing slippery elm and marshmallow.
