We are not able to find any information and I found this site and will try here. I will try anything! My daughter's babies, ages one and two have bowel movements that seem to burn their skin within moments of having a bowel movement. If they are sleeping... when they have a bowel movement, you can count on skin being burned off, raw and bloody. We try very hard to make sure that we get a diaper off of them as soon as it is dirtied, but as soon as you change one, they can have a bowel movement and within half an hour there is a huge rash and skin seems to be burned off. We need help with this!

We have strange and rare genetic illnesses and such in the family, but nothing that would cover this. We have Cadasil, fibromyalgia and CFS, hyperactivity and my daughter had severe exzema and everyone else just sensitive skin.

I would consider that with the skin sensitivities we have in the family, that that might be part of this... but I have taken care of a lot of babies and have never seen anything like this. They are burned within moments. There has to be something that is causing this.

Thankful for any answers... Dipity
