Welcome to icliniq.com.
You seem to be very worried and I think this is your first child, which is why all the worry is taking place.
Here are certain things you should know about children under the age of 6 months. Slight coughing, sneezing, gurr gurr noises from the chest that does not impair feeding of the child is normal. The child may pass small amounts of stools 10 to 15 times per day or sometimes once in two days. The child may sleep throughout the day and stay awake at night. The child may pass gas like a big person and may have hiccups occasionally. Warning signs in children are as follows:
- Lethargy and refusal to feed
- Passage of white stools or stools containing blood.
- Multiple episodes of vomiting with abdominal distention and not passing stools at the same time.
From your history and photo (attachment removed to protect patient identity), I do not think that he is a sick child. As the weight 11.2 pounds for a 2 month old child is extremely good. A sick child will not have such a good weight.
Regarding the rashes, I am very sure that you must have been prescribed antibiotics and medicines, which were unnecessary as these are normal phenomena in children below the age of six months. These medicines might have lead to increased acidic content of the stools, which would lead to a rash. I would advise to stop the medicines you are giving for cough, cold and loose motions. This should normalize the gut flora and bring the digestion process back to normal. Also, I suggest application of Rashfree ointment (Benzalkonium chloride) to the region and leave the region open for most of the time for up to a week. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent. Currently as per your history, I do not think the child requires any medicine. There is no need of calcium and multivitamin supplements as weight is good.
