There are between 5 to 10 pediatricians at this office and he's basically seen every one of them and they all say the same thing. I don't know if they are just trying to agree with the other pediatricians based on the notes in his file or what. I don't feel this is normal. He gets diaper rash a few times a week even though I put either vaseline or a&d ointment. He's eating the same foods he was before the diarrhea started so I don't think it could be a food allergy. Does anyone have any idea on what this could be?
My daughter went thru the same things your son is going thru she had so much trouble with her stomach and diarrhea the docters said she was fine until I took her to an endoncronologist he performed a colonoscopy and a sigmodoscopy and they found she had "CELIAC DISEASE" as soon as she went on the Gluten Free Diet she got alot better, they can't tolerate Wheat or Gluten, barley and Rye, maybe your son could get some results also, I hope this helped!
