My 12 week old has had diarrhea for 16 days now. Her butt is so raw that it bleeds. They checked her stool for rodavirus and it was negative. She didn't have any changes in her diet. They can't seem to figure out why she has it. The doctor sent us to the emergency room with her last weekend and they just told us that she is still hydrated and since she doesn't seem to have any other symptoms keep doing what we're doing and if it's not better in a few days call the doctor. The doctor told us to give her pedialite half of the time for a day and see. Then they told us to try giving her cereal in her bottle. Then they told us to put her on soy milk because she may have developed a lactose intollerance. She still has the diarrhea and her butt is so sore! Any suggestions why she may have the diarrhea?
