Hello how are you dr . Thank you for this service. I had suspicions that my son ( 10 years old) is involved in anal sex. I note stool discharge in his pants and abnormal behavior, he is denying and resisting me. is it possible to diagnose his case by medical examination of the anal area? probably he has some fissure. Really I am sad for my son. I don t know what to do. please help

For the past couple weeks, my 6 month old son has been having around 5 loose stools per day (usually he only had one) he never ran a fever, was still having wet diapers, and acted ok. But now, he is having so many bm that his bottom is so sore and red. Can the loose stools be from teething? We have also been introducing solids for about a month now. Any ideas on what is causing the increase loose stools and the best solution for the severe diaper rash?
