Usually they will ask you to eliminate milk (dairy) from the diet to see if you notice any difference or they can do a skin prick or blood test, hope you get some answers soon

Your poor lil bub. Its not nice seeing them in pain from nappy rash. My dd (15 months) has had a few bouts of these bad nappies now and ive noticed with her its connected to teething. Her front teeth came through fine but the molars & now eye teeth are causing these bad numbers two's and horrible rashes. I just lather zinc cream on & it tends to help. Hope you find out whats causing it soon.

She may have picked up a tummy bug. Diarrhea can be acidic and burns the skin. Adding bi-carb to bath water is soothing for a sore bottom as well as a thick layer of bepanthen or similiar.

I don't think its a tummy bug. Thinking back, this is the fourth & definately the worst bout of "acid poo" in about a month.
What confuses me though, is that if its a milk intolerance, that she showed no symptoms when drinking formula. Would it just be that the formula is easier to digest perhaps?

My boys have had this a number of times over the years for all different reasons. Teething is a big one.
Firstly- STOP using ANY soap or wipes on her bottom. Do not use wipes on her. They are the absolute worst thing for raw bottoms.
Instead- give her a nice warm water wash thoroughly after every poo. I used the laundry tub, or the kitchen sink.
Secondly- get a good cream. I actually found that Savlon worked really well for Lysander- so that on first followed by the Cursah powder with zinc in it.
Thirdly- Try to let her stay out of nappies as much as you can. Lots of nappy free time, playing in the sun
And try to make sure she is drinking lots of water and limit the amount of citrus fruits if she's eating those.
Good luck. It is absolutely horrible when they have such sore bottoms. Poor baby.

I use to care for a little girl who had symptoms like this, it ended up being celiac disease. She would occasionally vomit as well.

I could have written this about my DD a few months ago. Turns out too much cows milk (she can tolerate a little, maybe 50mls every few days, no more) and also grapes. Too acidic.
