<p>Has your daughter been to the doctor? I would take her right away because this doesn't sound normal.</p>

<p>I think you should also look into food allergies. Does she also have any rashes on her skin? Any respiratory problems, such as runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing? The gastrointestinal problems alone suggest a food allergy, but if she also has any of these other symptoms I'd really suspect it. Perhaps try an elimination diet, under doctor's supervision, to see if the symptoms improve.</p>

<p>ktarr, you already got responses in the other thread. The consensus is that you need to take your child to a doctor. There is no other advice that anyone can give at this point.</p>

Has your doctor considered the possibility of Chron's disease? Uncontroolable explosive diarrhea can be a symptom.<br>
