  • White stool could mean that there is a problem with the common bile duct. Gallstones? Is the stool clay-like? Obstruction of the common bile duct? Something pressing on it? Sounds like you need to see a pediatrician...soon.

  • Many states have programs for uninsured children. http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/medicarehealthinsurance/a/schip.htm It is possible he has Celiac disease. I would contact your local health department for advice or referrel to a "free clinic" for children in your area or how to go about getting some child care "pro bono". You are in my prayers.

  • For the sake of your child, please let me restate more clearly what I think others are saying. I understand that you have no money or insurance, but your child is seriously ill. By the sounds of it this is not just a flu, rash, or something mild that will likely go away, and it could lead to serious injury. Please get the child to a hospital or doctor immediately. - don't wait until it's too late!
