Is It To Be Concerned About The Child Have Red Stool?

my eleven month old daughter is having red paste poop what is it? She has a dairy and soy allergy and her diet has not changed no new food she has been sick for a couple of weeks and with repeat ear infections and she does also have asthma. She can not seem to get over this cold even with antibiotics. She has been very irritable and fussy and her poop has been like this off and on for almost two weeks. What should I do?

Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response
Hi...the possibilities are -

1. Antibiotic associated diarrhea
2. Cow's milk protein intolerance
3. Infective diarrhea or bacillary dysentery.

I suggest you get a stool routine test done and followup with your pediatrician.

Unless the kid's having low urine output or very dull or excessively sleepy or blood in motion or green bilious vomiting...you need not worry.

Regards - Dr. Sumanth
