19 month old with diarrhea - not sick!

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

Ladies,

I need some help.

Our daughter is 19 month's old and has had diarrhea for almost a week now, she hasn't nor is she sick. There's no other symptoms at all. She's been drinking a lot of juice lately so I thought maybe this was the reason & cut it out so I could see if that's what is causing it. Been over 36 hours with no juice (which I know isn't completely healthy but no other ideas til I know what's causing it).

The diarrhea is so bad she has a HORRIBLE rash because of it. There are welts on her legs too from it. It's really bad. I am going to call & make an appt for her with our doctor for Friday but until then I have no ideas. She has had all of her teeth except her 2nd molars for about 4 months now, so that has nothing to do with it.

Her diet hasn't changed except maybe too much juice. Which is why I cut it out.

Our post clinic is closed tomorrow for Veteran's Day so I have to wait til Friday to take her in. Any ideas on what's causing my 19 month old's diarrhea or others with the same thing?

No juice won't hurt her. I never give my kid juice just water. Let her run free with no pants outside or inside if you're game and give her clean water to keep her hydrated if she is still pooing. Bananas clog them up a bit too but are still healthy.

Hi Crystal. I want to thank you for your input but this post is a little old so I am going to close it. Thanks for your contribution though. :)

Lotrimin or monistat mixed with desitin maximum strength will relieve the rash in about 12 hours.

You can try giving her gruel. You make some oatmeal and then put it through a strainer and keep the thick liquid and throw out the oats. It is something my mom and I have both used and it helps thicken things up when kids have diarrhea and are too young to take medicine for it. (Works for anyone really) Good luck with your 19 month old's diarrhea. Hope you can get her into the doctor soon.
