Brief Answer:
may be stomach bug

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

I think your baby is suffering from some infection in the stomach. Most of them are viral but as you have already started with antibiotics, complete the course.

Zinc may also be given for faster recovery.

Redness in the buttocks is due to irritation by frequent stools.
Do not rub the area, just wash with water and let it dry on its own.

Avoid top feed, give only breast milk.

If I will be the treating doctor I would have recommended Nadibact plus cream in place of two creams you mentioned for 2 to 3 days and some regular dusting powder on the red area.

Once loose motion stops the area will become normal.

Do not worry about the side effects and continue the medicines.

Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help you.

Regards.

I m staying outside in college hostel for last 2 months and the food is very spicy here. From last 3-4 weeks i m suffering from loose motion continuously, sometimes less and sometimes very acute with passing of mucus and black loose stool. After consultation with my local physician over phone, i m taking ofloxacin-200mg and ornadizole-500mg combined tablet over the last 15 days or so once daily after dinner, but without much improvement. Especially when the medicine is skipped someday, then it gets worse. I m not having any stomach pain but sometimes gas formation is there, especially at early morning. Can you please help.
