... but it looks like you can see his insides! He poops pretty regular! Anybody know anything about this? He screams in pain when his bottom is like that. Surgeon said diaper rash, never seen diaper rash like this! It's only around the opening!
Grandma, No you can't worry too much about a 1-year-old with such problems. If this continues I am sure it is swelled up and looks more open than normal. But it would not hurt to ask the doctor what type of cream you can put on him to avoid the pain. Poor little guy. are his stools hard? then maybe he might be having trouble passing and ask about a stool softener. Just make sure you get everything ok by the doctor. please give the little guy a hug from me too. I am so sorry he has to deal with this but hopefully it will be all healed up soon. and thank God they can fix problems like this. Never worry about worrying about him when he has such problems to start. You might even get the pediatric doctor to look at him much time the surgeons don't know as much about rash etc on babies. God bless
My son was born with imperforate anus and had to have several surgeries to correct it. I don't know your grandson's details, but he could have severe diaper rash because his skin isn't used to having bowel movements touching it, making it extremely sensitive and prone to diaper rash that bleeds and is painful (I'm assuming he had a colostomy?).My son also has what looks like his "insides" when he has a big bowel movement. If it's diaper rash, try making a diaper rash paste with 40% zinc oxide, baby powder, A& D ointment, and a touch of maalox liquid and be sure to clean his bottom very thoroughly after he has a bowel movement before applying the cream. Also, keep his bottom as dry as possible.
