Re: my 18 month old son has really bad diarrhea. What can i do?
When my daughter had diarrhea our pedi told us to keep her very hydrated but to stay away from the juices. They said to give her a BRAT diet (bannanas, rice, apples, and dry toast). I actually mixed the applesauce with rice and fed that to her alot. I would put pieces of rice on her high chair for her to feed herself.
As far as trying to prevent/relieve a diaper rash...we used warm wash clothes (they said no wipes not even the sensitive) and also changed her diapers about every half hour. We also used TONS of Triple Paste cream and that seemed to really help. They said you should use some type of cream that has zinc in it (which the triple paste does).
How long has he had the diarrhea? Did you call your pediatrician?
I hope that helps. Does your little guy have a fever with the diarrhea? Best of luck to you and your little one.
