My soon to be 3 year old has had horrible smelling poop for about a week now. The texture of the poop is mushy but not runny. The smell is like nothing I have ever smelled before. Nothing has changed in his diet and his appetite has been the same. He will wake up in the middle of the night to poop and that is not normal for him (no he's not potty trained). Its really acidic too and he has a bad diaper rash from it. Anyone have any experience with this?

We never did find out what caused it. It lasted about a week to a week and a half and then he was done. He hasn't had that issue since. It was really weird and it was such a horrible smell.

I know this is old post but my 2 year old had the same. He poops 6-8 times a day and is mushy soft and brown. But it's acidic smelling and had chronic diaper rash to the point we had to have an on going Rx cream. He had a barium study, colonoscopy and endoscope. They all came back normal. We changed his diet etc. Nothing. I finally asked to see an allergist. We found out he has egg, soy and peanut allergy among others such as animal dander, mold, etc. He tested positive for 15 out of 32. Just wondering if you found the cause?
