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.

My daughter was complaining of feeling sick yesterday and was coughing and acting like she wanted to throw up. She threw up a little last night and is still coughing today. She complained that her face was itchy and I noticed she developed a small rash on her cheek near her eye.
