Why the motion of 3 yr old runny , looks muddy and has bad smell ?

My 3 year old grandson has always had unusual poo. It is runny and looks like mud. Smells quite offensive too. His mum says she thinks he is lactose intolerant as cows milk goes straight through him. She has tried him on soy milk but he dosen t seem to cope well with that either. He won t drink goats milk. He also has excema on both cheeks all year round but nowhere else on his body. He looks normal size and healthy but gets lots of colds. I thank you for your advice.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic ,
Lactose intollerence is very uncommon in this age and should be confirmed by detecting Reducing sugar test of stool.The type of stool depends on diet pattern.Dont give cows milk to a baby without pasturization and consult with your PD.

3 yr old baby now takes all other things .besides milk one to two times
if intolerant to milk he can be given other drinks available for babies
it is better to consult paediatrician for offensive smelling stool ,he may be having some infection .a stool examination will help
persistent eczeema should be taken care of .consult dermatologist and take treatment
