Mucous in stool: when you have diarrhea it is not uncommon to have mucous in the stool. Try some lomotil (diphenoxylat and atropine) over the counter and or some keopectate and your bowels will get better in the future. Good luck and feel better.

Is it possible to get rid of watery eyes, runny nose, and coughing mucus in a day?

Watery eyes: Sounds like you have a viral illness. Take an over-the-counter decongestant and see if this helps. A saline nasal spray is also helpful. Drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. If you are still having problems after 7 days, call your primary doctor.

See a Dr. GI or PCP: These are nonspecific no diagnostic symptoms. If there is a change in bowel movement to diarrhea maybe an acute gastroenterologist is by virus, toxins from bacteria, toxin from antibiotic use ( c. Difficile toxin). Burning on forehead maybe because of fever orvasodilator on.2 weeks is too long to wait for acute diarrhea to disappear. Needs workup with stool tests , lab tests, keep good hydration.

My 5 month old breast fed daughter consistently has liquid bowel movements, she's gaining weight well, are liquid poops distinct from diarrhea?

May not be diarrhea: If a baby is eating, behaving, and growing fine... but has loose poops that can squirt out of her butt, she may be normal, especially if breastfed. Some breastfed babies have loose stools (a bit looser than spaghetti sauce). If she pushes her poop out, it will come out somewhat liquid. If she is very gassy, has smelly poop, or is not growing well, a doctor should evaluate for digestive problems.
