    Default 13mth old DD has recourring "acidic" poo, burns bottom straight away & smells odd

    My 13mth old has had a poo day She has soiled her nappy 4 times already today and each time the poo smelt odd, sometimes slightly watery. Maybe kind of acidic. Anyway, before the last change she just started crying, really really crying & when I picked her up she was holding onto me so tightly and crying out. I knew something was wrong. So I checked her nappy and she had done another one. But the poor little things bottom was so red! It was very sore. So ive covered it in bepanthen and she is happy now. So in the space of around 1hr between poos, this last one has really burnt her bottom very quickly. This has happened a couple of times before over the last month. I thought it might be an allergy but I cant pinpoint any different foods that's she's eaten. Its odd because the consistency isn't really diarrhea, but seems to have watery and solid formed parts to it. Has anyone else's bubs experienced this? Im going to mention it to the health nurse next week.

    Could it be from teething? My DS would get really acid poos and sore bum when teething.

    Have you started her on cows milk? Dairy intolerance's can cause bad nappy rash?

    Something she's eaten? Drank? Orange juice did that to my son and my sister. Maybe she's eaten something she hasn't had a lot of before?

    As PP's have said I would think teething or food intolerance.

    Have you checked her mouth for teeth coming through?
    Fed her anything acidic lately like tomato based products? Juice? Acidic fruit?

    My dd gets this when teething, it burns her bottom so bad. Apart from keeping the nappy rash cream on thick and changing straight after each soil there's not much else you can do.

    DS gets this when teething or when he's had antibiotics. A probiotic helps to balance them out. Also the bepanthan ointment (light blue) with sudocream on top in a thick layer will help protect her little butt. I've found oatmeal baths help to sooth as well.

    Ds2 gets this.

    Try some daktozin nappy cream from the pharmacy. It's more for nappy rash as a result of a bacterial infection but I find it heals better than bepanthen or sudo when ds has really smelly acidic p00.

    Yes she has recently been started on cows milk, but its been a very gradual process since she turned 1yo (about 1 - 2 months ago) as she refused to drink straight cows milk. She has been on S26 stage 2 with no problems (she was BF up until around 9mo) Ive been mixing her bottles, and this week ive just got her down to 1/3 formula and 2/3 cows milk in her bottles, with the occasional straight cows milk. She has been teething, has 5 teeth. Cant find any more poking through just yet. But I feel like its more than teething, something's not right. She has also lost 100grms in the last month, but she has become increasingly active and had a bout of HFM & Germ Measles (yey for daycare).So tonight she has woken up crying hysterically about 1.5 hrs after being put to bed (she usually sleeps all night). She had done another poo (I think this is number 8?) and was very sore and had the sweats as well. Her poor bottom is so red and her poo is kind of dry but with lots of little bits of chopped up food in it. Like its not digested properly iykwim. And it kind of smells sour, maybe like a jar of olives. Trying to wipe it clean she was literally jumping off the table. I was in tears So im going to take her up to the GP tomorrow. How do I go about finding out if its a milk intollerance? Does the GP test for that or do I need to see a paed? Also thanks for everyone's responses.
