Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Your child is having gastroenteritis
mostly due to a virus.
Because of frequent loose stools and frequent washing of that area he developed nappy rash.
For fast healing of nappy rash, the frequency of loose motions to be reduced by giving treatment for diarrhea.
or saccharomyces can be given orally for 3 to 5 days.
The mainstay of treatment is to maintain hydration of the child by giving sips of oral rehydration fluids like Pedialyte.
Zinc supplementation for 2 weeks orally will help to decrease the loose stools.
For nappy rash I advise :
1. After washing the bum area with water, just touch the area with a soft clean cloth and don't rub the area.
2. Allow the area to get dried.
3. Don't wear diapers at home and frequently change the diapers.
4.You can apply a zinc oxide
creams over rash area twice or thrice daily.
5. Consult your Pediatrician
for the assessment of your child and get specific treatment for the diarrhea.
Hope I have answered your query.
