Painful stomach, foul smell, loose stools. What is the cause?

Hi ,

I've just had my 11 month old son up for the last hour and a bit screaming in pain. I thought it may have been stomach pains at first but now think it was his nappy area as when I changed him he screamed if I went near his ball sack . He has been doing really smelly and runny (although not as runny last couple of days) poos with seeds in them and his bum is very tender now as he seems to be pooing a lot .ive managed to get him back down now but wondering what might be causing his poos and what to do?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
Your 11 month old son is screaming in pain, feeling pain when you touch his nappy area near ball sack, and also while pooing.
It appears to be the nappy rash that is causing pain, caused by loose motions , as the motion contains seeds it represents indigestion, and stomach pain also would have been there.
The stools is smelly and runny, so it must be with lot of infection.
I advise you to consult a pediatritian for diagnosis and treatment. You may have to get the stools examination for bacteria, and reducing substances, besides other routine tests for confermation of the cause.
If reducing substances are present lactose containing foods should be excluded from the diet of the baby.
Wishing for a quick recovery.
Best regards.
