Child has low grade fever, green and soft stool, fussiness, decreased appetite

I have a 15 month old female who has the following symptoms: low grade fever, green soft stool , fussiness , and decreased appetite x 6 weeks . She is having a bowel movement q3 hours ( not her norm). I chalked it all up to teething but now we ate having problems w severe diaper rash which we can not get under control with topical meds . Mild cough and runny nose too.... ( it appears to be a little better after a month)... Very prone to ear infections which I m sure she now has after what I assume was a virus. Please help!!!! Her pediatrician lectures me every time I take her in about getting a her tubes but I have been fighting w her office bc they still havent done m referral. It s excuse after excuse ....

Pediatrician 's  Response
I am sorry to hear about your baby. I thik she may have got ear infection and
nappy rash. Children do get loose motion ir they got bacterial infection and loss
of appetite. Please take her to your doctor to check her ears. She may need
a course of antibiotics for ear infection. As regards her diaper rash she should
be given Nystaform cream apply 2 to 3 times daily and frequenly change
diaper. Keep her off diaper for some time. Kindest regards Dr.S.K. mukherjee
