Question: my 2 year old has small blisters on her rectum
Answered by Dr. Venkata Subrahmanaym Mukkavilli 24 minutes later
Brief Answer: probably it is bacterial infection Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for asking question on XXXXXXX I need to ask a few questions to narrow down the diagnosis. If you can answer the following: Can you describe the rash? Is your daughter having blisters over the anal region or inside the rectum? Are the blisters filled with fluid? Do the blisters rupture on touch? Does she have any other symptoms? It is not possible to see blisters in the rectum without doing proctoscopy. If the blisters are seen externally over the anal region most probably it is bacterial infection. Better take antibiotics with the advise of the doctor It may be allergic rash /diaper rash. In that case apply candid ointment and cetrizine syrup for a few days. Since examination by a doctor is essential, it should be seen by a pediatrician to confirm the diagnosis and proper treatment Hope this answer will serve your purpose Please feel free to ask any more queries if required Take care Dr.M.V.Subrahmanyam MD;DCH Associate professor of pediatrics

the blisters are over the anal region, not inside. They have broke so not sure about fluid. They do not hurt her and she has no other symptoms. She has had a bad viral cough for 3 weeks now and I just started probiotics 2 days before this happened. Any other thoughts? Her stool has lots of mucus in it as so does her cough.

Brief Answer: cough and stools require attention to blisters. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for asking question on health care magic. YOU need to give a cough syrup containing dextromethorphone to suppress the cough. you may give DM cough syrup 2-3 times daily to suppress cough. For mucous in the stools you are already using probiotics . that will do.

Good evening, I had a recent bout of what my GP described as gastro virus. Symptoms were bloating , severe cramping with constant burping and flatulence . No vomiting or diarrhoea. I had feverish feelings but no high temp. This lasted for 4 days and is thankfully almost gone. The day I went to my GP (4th day) I was developing a rash on my face and forehead . I thought it might be the stress of the previous days and nights. My GP didnt have an opinion. This has gotten somewhat worse. It is not itchy but has a burning sensation and very noticeboard. I was wondering if this might be an after effect of my stomach ailment or something else. I have been applying a mild moisturiser with no effect as yet. Thank you for any advice.

Hello, Dr. Grief. For the past 5 or 6 weeks, I have been experiencing strange rashes on certain parts of my body. I am currently taking Lialda for an inflammatory bowel condition. I ve been taking it for a bout 21/2 years. It usually goes and comes, but recently, (for about 4 days), it has appeared in the inside of my elbow bend in both arms. I took Benedryl gfor a few days, but it didn t seem to help. Then I tried the proverbial creams, with no help. I intend to make a visit to my gastrologist in another week. Do you have any advice on this type of skin rash? Jeanette F.
