Hello My daughter is 7months she is having loose foamy stools since 10days and due to which rashes in the bum. Initially doctor said she is lactose intolerant and hence stared lactaze in every feed and suggested stool test. Test results shows pus cells 35-40 and he has now suggested Zifi 50mg along with Zincogut. Is the medication fine?

Hello,

As per your history, it may be due to stomach infection.

Continue breast feeding.

He may require complete hemogram, stool analysis after pediatrician consultation.

Watch for dehydration symptoms like dry skin, decreased urination

I have constant diarrhea for seven days now. My feces is like water, the color is yellow, and it s smells like a newborn infants feces. I have a rash on my rectum, caused by the non stop restroom use. The rash is bleeding a little in a certain area. I also have lower back pain that started three weeks ago. It is horrifying pain at times to the point to where I m stuck in a position for about 7 seconds. Although the back pain is constant lasting through out the day and nite. I ve been taking Imodium for four days, it s not working for the diarrhea.
