DS always runs naked at home, but up until recently his buttocks were soft and white <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: now the skin is rougher and redder. 3 days ago he complained of it hurting when he sat down on his trike--the skin looked pretty irritaged. i put some moisturising cream on it and it hurt him, probably stinging sensation...i thought it would get better, but even though he doesn't complain anymore and the pain is probably gone, the skin is still not back to normal.<br><br>
i don't know if it matters that he's had upset stomach for about 2 weeks now, on and off.<br><br>
he'd have soft tiny poops throughout the day. like the size of a quarter coin, sometimes, or smaller.<br><br>
any ideas what it is? it looks a bit like wind burn, or how i'd think a wind burn would look.

My ds gets eczema there and on his knees. It is worse in the winter and has gotten worse as he has s.l.o.w.l.y. weaned himself.<br><br>
Since he is unwilling to eliminate foods as a possible cause, I do the following which seems to help.<br><br>
Epsom salt baths after which I coat him in olive oil. I also give him CLO and evening primrose oil daily and make sure that he eats yogurt.<br><br>
All these together keep it mostly under control. As I said, I still think it is food related but it is most absolutely exacerbated by the winter weather so...perhaps I am projecting my food issues on him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I forgot to add that yogurt always helps balance out my ds's stomach weirdnesses. I can't hurt so I say give it a try!
