Please help me! My daughter is 2 years old and having what I believe to be as digestive issues. Once a month, for a little over a year now, she gets a specific diarrhea that burns her terrible. When I say terrible I mean devastating.
Whatever it is coming out of her is so acidic I smell it from across the room as its coming out. As soon as she lets out her first scream I throw her on the ground and rip off her diaper as fast as I can while someone else runs a baking soda bath. Its too late. Instantly she has horrible burns that are beginning to blister. Often, it happens again an hour later and it burns her already blistered bottom until she bleeds. Getting her clean and getting diaper rash cream and burn ointments on her is a challenge.. a 2 man job at least.
The pain is so unbearable every person in the house cries with her. She has almost lost consciousness. Her screaming woke the neighbors last night. Her doctor says its typical diaper rash. Excuse me but NO.
Before you ask, I do NOT believe it is her diet. She is very routine she eats almost the same things everyday. Fruits, grilled chicken, loves tomatoes, pork, pasta, maybe French fries, and of course some chips and cookies for snacks. She is a very well rounded good eater, and I have documented what shes eaten the days this happen its always the things she eats almost everyday.
The only things I can possibly tie it to is maybe she has more juice on these days? When I fix her a sippy cup, it is 85% water 15% juice. So how much juice could she possibly be consuming I only give her a splash at a time to make like flavored water...
Ive given up on the doctors in hopes that when she gets potty trained this wont happen anymore because it wont make contact with her skin (even though I'm sure it will still burn). Unfortunately, it looks like she has some developmental issues that will prevent us from getting her fully potty trained anytime soon.
IM DESPERATE PLEASE HELP. keep in mind it only happens about once a month, and I do not believe it is her diet. or maybe? and it is not diaper rash, no way. My baby has a bowel movement of pure acid and it kills us everytime. Thank you for reading any advice is appreciated.
