Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This is definitely normal.
Explosive mucus bowel movement suggests inflammation of the intestinal lining.
Giardia, amoeba, e coli, salmonella common can cause this.
These are bacterial or parasitic infection.
You need to get stool tests and then a prescription antibiotic flagyl after seeing your GP.
Meanwhile you may start on a probiotic daily.
Avoid dairy products, as lactose intolerance can set in anytime causing this problem.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
