Brief Answer:
Can be due to breast feeding.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The intermittent spotting instead of a proper period is due to the breast feeding and other hormonal changes that take place after the childbirth. To avoid this spotting you can start with a regular contraceptive pill. The rashes on biceps can be due to allergy and dermatitis. A dermatologist can help you in this regard. Pimples on the face and feeling hot can be related to the hormonal changes. The regular periods will resume once you stop the breast feeding.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Will these hormonal changes reflect on my baby?

Is my LO in safezone?

Brief Answer:
Nothing worrisome.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
You can travel in case you and your baby feel normal and healthy.
The hormone changes will not reflect on your baby. No need to worry. Do consult a pediatrician regarding the frequent stools as proper medicine can be started only after a direct examination.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
