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.

Detailed Answer:
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 )

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


Take care

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
