Baby diarrhea is a condition where the consistency / shape of a baby's BAB is more fluid than usual, with a higher frequency of BAB than usual. In newborns with breastfeeding, diarrhea cases often occur because of the risk of allergies, especially if a family member has a history of allergies, whether allergic to sea fish, nut allergies, or other food allergies.
Apart from the risk of allergies, the risk of digestive infections and the presence of lactose intolerance (in infants with milk) can also cause diarrhea in infants. However, all this requires a direct examination by a pediatrician.
Complications that often occur in infants with diarrhea can be dehydration, irritation in the area around the rectum and genitals (especially when using diapers), and complaints of redness of the skin (in infants with a history of allergies).
In connection with your question, if your baby is breastfed and has diarrhea accompanied by irritation or blisters in the area around your baby's rectum, this condition is likely caused by repeated irritation from the stool that comes out and causes inflammation of the skin around your baby's rectum. The possibility of allergies can trigger this condition.
Therefore, it is important that you evaluate the presence or absence of a family history of allergies, and evaluate the type of food you consume one day before your child has diarrhea. If you consume sea fish, shrimp, or other foods that might trigger allergies and diarrhea in your baby, then you should stop consuming these foods, because they can have implications for your baby with the allergic reactions they are experiencing.
In addition, care for your baby's skin irritation, you can do with:
1. Clean the rectum with baby soap and running water after the baby has diarrhea. So that irritants in the rectal area can be clean
2. Give lotion powder to baby after cleaning
3. or baby oil at night to help reduce irritation.
This is the initial anticipatory step you can take before meeting your doctor.
And henceforth, visit your pediatrician for examination and evaluation of your baby's clinical condition and to find out the cause of this diarrhea. Handling and care will be given according to the results of your doctor's examination.
