My 2 year old is having bm issues. My 2 year old is having bm issues. It's not hard, it's actually kind of loose and gritty almost sandy. She is in a lot of pain everytime she has to go which is all day long. We stopped milk and dairy to see if that was t
Stopping : Stopping dairy is a good idea. Good foods for diarrhea include rice, bananas, and soft foods. Avoid citrus fruits or vegetables. Soft bread or dry cereal would be fine.

As such, I would certainly be concerned and would see a doctor in an ED or urgent care center today for an evaluation. ...Read more

Keep drinking plenty of water, ask whether a urinalysis to confirm this is in order, ask your physician whether it's worth checking your blood uric acid levels, or whether it's worth taking medication to alkalinize your urine (I wouldn't) which would dissolve the stuff. ...Read more
