usually breast fed babies are normally passing loose stools many times they feed they pass loose stool. some times babies are developing intolerance to a sugar present in the milk called as lactose. which enhances acidic nature of the stool which causes the redness in the perianal area and also frequent watery stool not responding to any medication. one should check the PH and presence of reducing substances in the stool. if they are positive one should start feeding the child with lactose free milk commercially available in the market.This lactose intolrance could be temporary usually but some time it is permanent
