My son has had the runs for about 5 days now. I originally thought it was just teething. He has had no fever and no fussiness. His bottom has gotten all torn up from it (he is having about 10 full diapers of the runs a day which the doc said keep him hydrated and give him the BRAT diet and if it exceeds 7 days bring him in) I am chaning him every time he goes potty, including pee to keep moisture off his butt and wiping him with plain white paper towels that are only wet with water because his wipes hurt him and letting him run around naked for 10-20 mins after every change. So I just changed Poopy #5 only this time it was very small and looked like blood mixed with mucus. I have seen this in kids with colds but not otherwise. I have a doc appt in 2 hours and I saved the diaper for the doc but has anyone else seen this before? Was it something serious?
