Q.

white stools

I have an eight and a half month baby boy who is generally quite healthy. 2 weeks ago he had a viral infection and doctor gave him interflora as he had a runny tummy. This weekendhe had a runytummy and his stools were white/creamish in colour and smelt different. Is there any need for concern.
Thanks
Claire

Not at present, but if the white stools or diarrhoea persists then it will definitely require evaluation.
