What can be done for a raw bottom due to lose motions ?

my 7 year old daughter has had diarrhea for the past week off and on. She was complaining of her stomach cramping yesterday but now says it goes away when she uses the rest room. This morning she has been to the bathroom 3 times in just an hour. It is very loose stool almost water. Her appetite is huge lately but I just put it as growing. She has a raw bottom because of the constant bathroom trips. Should I be concerned with a type of worm.

Hi, Larisa,
Your daughter is suffering from gastroenteritis,
Give plenty of water,lemon water with salt,apple,curd,rice etc.
Take steps to prevent dehydration.
Give anti diarrhoeal anti spasmodic medicines,
Apply some antibiotic cream locally.
Warm infestation is less likely but you have doubt go for stool for ova and cyst.
ok and bye.
