    It definitely sounds like your little one has an intolerance to something and most likely dairy/cows milk. After a bout of gastro my little ones have often become intolerant to milk and the aftermath of their poos is always acidic, burning poos with a smell that is unique to acidy poos, which those who have smelt it know what I am talking about, it's not your run of the mill ordinary bm smell.

    Hopefully you'll get some answers from the GP today.

    As an aside, I cannot recommend Daktozin enough if you're needing a topical cream to help relieve the symptoms. I am also in the process of trailing the new Sudo cream so hopefully will find out if that does the trick also.

    Hi snooze
    My ds is similar but not as bad..
    He poos 3-4 times a day and that's his normal.it burns his bum each time so it's really hard to clear his rash up. I usually am just keeping it under control so it's not too bad.
    I'm off to see a specialist at the end of the month as he also had a rash after eating egg so I'm going to also ask about his poo habits and burning his butt of that means he has some other intolerances. I will let u know what he says about that part.
    Hopefully your gp can refer you on to an allergy specialist too. Poor things and its so hard trying to think what can I stop feeding them to stop these poopsplosions.. I'm at the moment cutting out all tomato things.. See how that goes. Very hard to cut out dairy when his drink of choice is still his bottle at 13m

    Goodluck I really hope ur doc helps!

    Dd1 used to get rotten poos, I can only describe the smell as like nail polish, the way it got up your noise : vomit: It stopped after we took her off wheat. Hope you get some answers soon, trust your instincts and I hope the gp is helpful.

    Well been to Drs and no conclusive answers just yet He said it could be a number of things - bacterial infection, intolerance to lactose or milk protein or intolerance to an ingredient. Have taken a stool sample & expect results Monday. The odd smell is likely to be from all the undigested food in her poo. He's also told me to keep a very close eye on her weight over next few weeks as she has lost 100g over period of a month. This could also indicate she is not digesting food properly. Although he said its unlikely to be lactose intolerance as she was fine with bm & formula, he suggested I try different brand cows milks and see if there is any pattern with the reaction. So I'm backing off the cows milk for now & going back to formula. Ill also give Zymil a try in case its lactose. If there's no improvement or it keeps coming & going, next step is paediatric referreral & more tests.

    Oh and we got some cortisone cream for the bottom!

    Hi, the exact same thing happened when I started dd on cows milk, I was lucky enough to see a dietitian straight away and she said it is quite common as the milk protein in formula is broken down more than in normal milk, it's an intolerance that most grow out of as their tummies mature, dd now has a little milk every day and we are slowly increasing the amount (except when teething, it gets worse then) but she still primarily has formula for now.

    Just an update...
    My little ones test results came back today as nothing unusual, so feeling kind of at a loss. Was hoping we would have a definitive answer today

    On the flipside her bottom is finally healing! Had a crappy last few days (literally) and she has been pooing several times a day still and during the night also. Been so hard for her bottom to get a break! But today I think we might have turned a corner. Only had a couple of poos. We have been dairy free for 5 days now, except formula, so possibly its a dairy related intolerance? Going to reintroduce milk again soon & watch for another reaction.

    Over the last few days we have tried several treatments. Zinc cream, bepanthen, powder, 6 days of cortisone cream, Hydrozole, Resolve (in case thrush had started), egg whites, salt sit baths & lots of nappy free time in the sunshine. I know its a bit of an old wives tale, but I must say I'm amazed at how well the egg whites worked on her raw patches! You have to smear just a little bit all over, then let it dry to form a skin. It just sealed the skin right up & day after she had skin where it was raw!

    Here's hoping tonight is poo free & tomorrow is another good day for her!

    Glad to hear it's healing.

    My ds2 is going thru the same thing now, I think he's teething.

    Might try the egg white idea,haven't heard of that one before and his bum is raw red at the mo

    Poor little poppet. I like to give a bit of sunshine time, especially as it's some airing to the area. What a great tip regarding the egg whites. Unfortunately being a cortisone cream, Hydrazole should only be used sparingly, so if you find relief with natural things then that's got to be a positive.

    With the egg whites, just make sure you let it completely dry to form a skin. I made the mistake of putting her nappy back on too early. Then it dried & stuck to the nappy & ripped her skin a little. Oops
