Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
Dear Mr XXXXXXX

Slight mucous discharge is quite common in recovery phase following loose motion.
If the following criteria are fulfilled there is no need of further medication
1. Baby is accepting breast feeding well
2. Absence of blood in stools
3. No distension of abdomen


Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Hi

For the treatment of diaper rash you can try the following which is very beneficial

1. Zinc oxide paste: One of the commercially available suggestion is Dr XXXXXXX Zinc oxide paste
2. Himalaya diaper rash cream
3. Keep changing the diapers regularly every 2 hours and so on after every stool.
4. Continue Siloderm ointment application till you are able to procure Dr XXXXXXX Zinc oxide paste ( it is comparatively expensive but worth the price : it will also be helpful in future )

Zinc supplement will be helpful

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Greetings

Do not be worried about consistency . It will normalise in couple of days.
I would suggest you the following
1. Continue exclusive breast feeding
2. Zinc syrup : Zn 20 3 ml twice a day will be helpful.
Zinc supplement is helping in acute diarrhea in infants


Wishing him speedy recovery


Take care

I have been having GI issues for about 2 months now. At first, there was pressure when I went to the bathroom, but that has subsided. Now, my stomach feels bloated and full of gas when I wake up and sometimes throughout the day. Went to urgent care and they did an X-Ray of the intestines and stool sample but found nothing. I'm removing the lactose and taking an over the counter pro-biotic. Going to get blood tests at the end of the week. Could be neurological as I just finished grad school, no job and am entering the military at age 31. Any suggestions?
