Hello moms, Please I will like to know what causes baby of two months and 3weeks to poo green faeces, started today and she is on exclusive breastfeeding. And also her boom boom is red as if is ela, I try to expose her boom every afternoon for d past four days, still no improvement. I'm sorry for the long write up.
Any rashes that persist especially if reddish, forming discolouration need an urgent attention of a PAEd dermatologist.
What you can do as Mums...first assume it is a diaper rash from prolonged contact of skin with urine.....so 1) change diaper frequently when wet...not only when there is a poo 2) Apply diaper cream - vaseline, sudocream, shea butter, zinc oxide cream are fine...NOT POWDER pls....it must be something that creates barrier between skin and urine....powder will be formed into paste by urine and further irritates the skin..3) allow the diaper area to be exposed to air at times when you are home...don't always cover with diaper...let there be period OFF THE DIAPER ... fresh air just blowing the area. If you do this, most diaper rash will disappear....
There are 2 different types of nappy rashes in broad categories....those due to irritation from the urine and diaper...and those rashes that tend to occur in the nappy areas....It takes a Paed dermatologist to differentiate
