Is blisters around the rectum and belly connected to copper toxicity test ?

My two year old son has been tested for copper toxicity . He suffers from chronic constipation . We started him on distilled water and he has broken out in blisters all around the rectum in his diaper and on his belly. Is this connected to a detox?
