Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 10 months ago.

Thick discharge from rectum can be due to several reasons and most common are anal fistula, hemorrhoids or rectal abscess. Most of the time cause is infectious. I would recommend you to visit your urgent care as it should be thoroughly examined so that exact diagnosis can be confirmed and treatment can be started to avoid complications.

Hope this helps.
