Allergy Or Coincidence?

Sorry to hear your baby is having troubles too. Mine is also 2. We just tested her for celiacs - negative for now, but she has the gene so who knows. Her problem seems to be a dairy allergy. She has TERRIBLE diarreah and rashes as a reaction. Within 24 hrs she will have a blistery, fire red, rash on her bum. And yes we have days of liquid pourable poops. It is painful for her and me to change it She has only been dairy free a few weeks, so we have had a few accidents and always the same reaction. The most recent rash extended to her legs and torso.
During her biopsy, they said her intestines were chronically inflammed. Sounds painful to me. She reacts to the slightest amount of a milk protein. What I am getting at is that when your child has that kind of rash, there is some kind of damage in the intestines - maybe or maybe not gluten reaction. Black stools is something to be concerned about, so ask the dr if it continues.
I feed her a steady flow of yogurt and probiotics when she has a reaction. It seems to help heal the outside rash so I hope it heals the inside pains too. Both if them put the correct enzymes and things back in the bowels.
FYI: Juice can contain gluten. Usually mixed juices are questionable - like banana, pineapple, OJ flavored juice. Call the manufacturer and see if that could be a gluten reaction.
Hope she feels better soon.
