What can be causing mucus in stool?

NG

Unusually enough....I've seen quite a bit of this in my HIV practice in the males predominantly. It turns out in my practice the overwhelming cause is rectal gonorrhea. It is not as obvious to culture out as one would think. Blood sometimes follows. Pain may or my not be present.

Does hemrroids cause blood and mucus in stool?

Blood yes

Blood
Hemorrhoids can bleed - as many internal hemorrhoids to. Internal hemorrhoids are inside and only sometimes come outside. These usually don't hurt but can bleed. Most people with painful hemorrhoids are external hemorrhoids. If you are having mucus, however, there could be something more going on and a rectal exam and possible colonoscopy are critical to further evaluate for other diseases

My 2 years old baby having black mucus stool?

Not normal

Feces
Black stools are not normal. While rarely a dietary cause may be found, most often black stools signify blood in the stools, blood that is coming from a little bit higher up in the GI tract. I would see your doctor soon to first check out if it is blood, and if so, find out why the child has this.

Diarrhea
Diarrhea can occur from inflammation of the bowel due to a number of irritants. Causes can include virus, bacteria and even toxins produced by microorganisms. Since the bowel is lined with a mucous membrane irritation/inflammation can lead to increased mucous that will show up with diarrhea. About half of thoes with irritable bowel syndrome have mucous with diarrhea.
