As per the history goes cough cold n loose stool . It's viral gastroenteritis . Child has developed irritant contact dermatitis with transient lactose intolerance . Give zinc n vit a .if the child is on cow's or formula feed exchange it with a lactose free formula . If on breast milk add lactase drops to b given before feeds . Zinc oxide ointment plus mild steroids for anal excoriation .

Eczematous dermatitis over anus

Ii is high time to taper breast milk and switch on cow milk diluted milk is given teaspoon and not feeding bottle little auger is added to milk while Boling diarrhoea due to improper cleaning and bolling of feeding bottle is difficult to cure .

Sir cow's milk will worsen the condition . Further breast milk can be continued with lactaze enzyme drops . Transient lactose intolerance usually lasts for 2 weeks .

If breast milk is stopped breast milk is accumulated in breast and may develope into mastitis so every 2 hour milk is sucked out with breast pump .procedure is painful Bui I think there is no alternative . Is there any please suggest .

Peranal excoriation

Infection induced irritant dermatitis.
