Baby Stools
samhat94128 posted:
My daughter is 13 months old and has had a fever for the past week or so. it went away officially yesterday. we took her to the ER they said tylenol and ib profen every other 3 hours. Now she has a rash. her body was covered in just a heat rash but her face is blotchy and red all over. now today her stool is greenish brown with little orange balls (picture orange seeds almost) and they were filled with air and a little liquid. she has not had any fruits or foods that would cause this so im not sure what to think. if anyone can help me figure out what this is or the severtiy of it that would be a great help!

Hi SamHat

I would suggest in this case that you consult with your regular pediatrician. It may turn out that this is a viral infection, but it better to err on the side of carefulness in these cases.

Hope that helps,
