My 6 month old baby is passing stools at least 10 to 12 times a day since past one week. The color of stool varies from yellow to green and he passes stools as sopn as he takes milk (formula milk) or any semi solid introduced to him recently. Due to frequent stools he has developed rashes in and around anus area. Please suggest some good and effective medicine. Our paediatrician suggested tufpro and flagyl.
