Mucous.

It's a symptom of inflammation, maybe in the rectum.

I know about these all too well. When I am flaring, there is no safe way to fart other than on the toilet bowl. I 2nd the rectal meds.

I'll add light to this, doesn;'t necesserly mean a flare imo. I had it the other day a TON of mucas and had to keep wiping but have been fine since. It occasionally happens to me not very often but never means a sign of a flare for me anyway.
