I have a 15 month old son. Lately he has been having what I call 'acid poop'. Its yellow and watery and has an almost yeast like smell. If he poops his diaper at night, the next morning his bottom is blistered. We've never had a problem with diaper rash; This seems more like a burn than a rash. I read on Yahoo a lady who had a doctor give her a prescription ointment once for yeast infection for her son who was having the same problem and she said the ointment didn't seem to work that well. We leave his diaper off for awhile and it clears up. Has anyone else had this problem or know what causes it?
He won't eat solid foods- but will eat babyfood. And he's drinking like he's been dehydrated. A TON of milk/water/diluted juice etc. I've cut back on the juice, and I always mix it 3/4 water- 1/4 juice. He usually doesn't like straight water, but today he's been drinking it like it was milk.
Also, this morning he threw up... but he's been acting fine. Laughing, smiling, talking. Before he threw up he was happy- and immediately after he was also.
Any ideas? Thanks!!
