Question: Hi Doctor,

My baby is having bowel movement suddenly while/after feeding. it is not a kind of loose motion, mix of hard and watery stools, but always while having food or after food. what can we do for this ? she has red bruises on her buttocks because of this, can we apply candid cream on that which the pediatrician has prescribed for some rashes on her.

Please reply.

Hello , good evening.
Thanks for writing to us.

According to the symptoms you have mentioned, i feel that your baby might be having a simple lactose intolerance i.e transient intolerance towards lactose present in either mothers milk or cows milk.

I suggest you to get a stool routine and stool reducing substance test done and be back with the reports, analysing the reports , we can guide you properly.

For the rashes , candid ointment will not be enough.
Keep the area dry and you can apply rashfree ointment.
Kindly review with the reports.

Thank you, regards.

My son is two months old. He has been having problems with constipation, distended abdomen and partial rectal prolapse since he was born. He also has a red bumpy rash all over his face and head which seems to get worse after he eats. We had him on nutrimigen for three weeks which did not work and now we have him on similac alemintum which he has been on for about two weeks. He still has not improved at all. Do you think he could be lactose intolerant?

when ive had even a few units of alcohol, i will feel sick for days. ive been to my doctor on countless occasions and been told its my ibs. but after a large amount of tests still nothing is conclusive. ive been getting 2/3 day hangovers for about 6 years (im 25) i know im not wheat or lactose intolerant as the countless tests have all come back negative. this affects my life in a huge way. i feel like i cant stay at my girlfriends house after a few drinks because of the amount of times i will have to use the bathroom the next morning. and have to plan trips or days out carefully so i know where the nearest toilet is. any advice would be amazing as im at my wits end.
