Hello Doctor, My son is 10 months old and is passing semi solid stools 7-10 in a day and has 100 fever.I am giving him zanocin (ranbaxy) and crocin from past 60 hrs but it seems to be not doing that good. Fever is gone but motions are still intact. he cries while passing every stool. He is not eating much. He denies water and milk also. His bum has got blisters and I am applying Himalaya rash cream on it. He was little intolerant to lactose But i had always given him milk. Please advice

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

You can apply any zinc containing cream to the perianal area. Do not use excessive soap in the area. You may put the child under running water to clean the area. Keep the area dry and do not use nappies if possible.

If the stool has blood or child continues to have fever dysentry may be considered and child may be started on antibiotics by your doctor.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
