Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, what the skin condition is there could be due to allergic condition but the fecal material contained could be due to the diet taken if the stool condition remains as it is even after changing the diet then stool needs to be sent for testing and for the skin condition I would suggest to use the Diphenhydramine lotion over all it is nothing to worry hope this information helps.
