Why would a naturopath think it was not dairy when dairy intolerance is the leading cause of ear infections (because of mucous production)?
Do the probiotics have dairy on them? That could be cause of the runny poo.
Here's my story about DD2.... she has food intolerances that we figured out mostly when she was 13 months old (through elimination and intense food journaling). Corn was her worst, and would give her eczema. Last fall, I started giving the kids chewable probiotics. They are on a rotation diet to prevent them (hopefully) from getting any more foods taken away from them. In the fall, DD2 got bumps on her butt, almost pimple like, that would hurt her. Went to the doctor, said it was folliculitis. Went on Abx. Went away. A few days after she finished the abx, the bumps were back. Went back to the doctor. I asked the doctor if he was sure it couldn't be a food reaction (I had a gut feeling). He said he'd never seen anything like it. She went on another round of abx. Cleared up. A few days after she finished the abx, they were back again. Through the mothers here, I took a second look at the probiotics I was giving the kids. Sure enough. Citric acid, made from corn. Took her off the probiotics, and the bumps went away and haven't come back. So, it was a "bacterial infection" but it was because her immune system was full of corn and weakened her ability to fight it off.
My rec: start keeping a very detailed food journal.
Because of all the ear infections, I would take her off milk. It could be causing the rash as well.
My DS tested severely intolerant to oranges (and most citrus) so it certainly isn't unheard of.
The top 4 food intolerances are dairy, gluten, soy, and corn.
