  • Start by taking the kid to a licensed medical professional who will determine the cause of the diarrhea.
    In the meantime, plain water and cotton balls to clean the affected area and a moisture blocking salve to prevent further irritation.

  • 6 days and the only thought you have had is to ask a bunch of strangers without medical degrees?

  • take him to the doctor to find out the reason for the diarrhea. to soothe the rash, get some a&d ointment, not the paste, but the ointment.

  • There is something wrong with you if you have a 4 month old that has been sick for 6 days and you did nothing about it till the weekend! Is the baby getting enough fluids? Is she retaining enough fluids? Do you even know? Take them to an urgent care today!

  • yes hes getting enough fluids and i call my mom and she said that garterad and then put some water in it and thats all because my brother had the same thing she took him to the doctor and thats wat he said to do . i just wanted to see if it gotten any better in the few days or so but i guess not.

  • 4 month old babies can dehydrate and die from diarrhea lasting this long.
