My son is 7 months old and has three doctors, and not one of them has been able to really help with his problems. I am hoping that someone here will have heard of something like it, or experienced it and can give me some guidance.
He has GERD pretty bad, had it since he was born. At around 3 months of age he devolped constipation (had it ever since). For the past two weeks where ever the poop touches his skin it bleeds, has happened in the past before but now it's all the time. He has had leukocytopenia (low white blood cell count) on three separate occations with no sign of infection. He also has a thickened bladder wall (seen on ultrasound yesterday).
He is currently on ranitidine for the GERD. He is on Increasing amounts of Milk of Magnesia for the constipation (new dose works for couple of days, then back to solid turds have to increase amount) He is on Neocate formula (prescription hypoallergenic formula). We're putting Desitin, butt paste, A&D, and vasoline on his butt all to try and help.
If you know of ANYTHING that might help please write.
