Q.

crying when passing stool

Hi Doc
My 18 month old son had diarhea last week, so this week when he is passing stool he cries, like he is in pain. What can i use to relieve him(the stoll is not hard so he is not constipated)?. i currently use Bennets bum cream.
Thank you kindly

Your son probably has some rawness around his anus caused by his recent diarrhoea. Apply Bepanthen cream around his anus in particular to act as a barriar cream and to heal the rawness.Do not give him any fruit juices to drink.
