allergies and rash- ot
can allergies cause mucus in poop?? i am thinking emily may be allergic to something we are feeding her b/c just yesterday and today she started again with mucus gobs in her poop (after not having any for over a week and a half)

a day before she had the mucus diapers she got this weird mostly white bumpy rash in a ring around her neck and down her belly, on the outsides of her elbows and knees. some of those bumps looked like pimples (red with white heads) but mostly they were white bumps. Does anybody know what this could be? Could those two things be related?

Also mom to Nathan. born Jan.20th, 2009, MPI . so far dx with reflux and has an extremely sensitibe GI system. Also dx with primary immune deficiency disease.
I don't know about the other rash, but I do know that allergies can cause mucus in poop. Mucus is just a symptom of GI irritation, inflammation etc.... Hopefully you Ped can see her on Monday......am I remembering her appoint. correctly?

Cooper's poop was always full of mucous when I was eating whatever, so I think it is definitely food related. Also, if she is having seasonal allergies w/ lots of drainage, that could be showing up in the poop too. I'm not sure about the rash. I hopw you get it figured out soon.

Coyle Eagan. One Year Old. Doing well on Cow's Milk flavored with juice :) Drinking two bottles of Go&Grow daily. Eating solids better but still have rough days. No More Silent Reflux-that I can hear anyway.. but puking again. Zantac 2ML 2X daily.
yeah, i think mucus is a sign of inflamation/irritation . those bumps sound like eczema-maybe-which can be caused by allergies too. did you into a new food?

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
Rash definitely sounds like eczema to me; hubby and Katie both get it.

MSPI often causes mucus in poo. I also think that was eczema and that could be further indicaton of MSPI. My son got so much better when we changed his formula
