soo, John is still 23Ibs, and 81cm(around 31inches) He is 25months and still wears sz 12-18months clothes.
Im dragging him back to my fam. dr tomorrow and requesting she does tests because our ped. doesnt think there is a problem. He has gone from 50% of his height to belown 3% and with his weight he is in the 10% ... down from 50%.
He has yet in his life to have a normal bm(sorry for tmi), when he was a baby he used to get so constipated he wouldnt go for a week, and if he wasnt constipated he was having explosions...so we eliminated milk... he hasnt been constipated since...but he has loose loose loose bm's and its not mattering what he eats.
We are waiting til sept 26 for an allergy test. The past few days he has been refusing to eat..yesturday he ate one banana..thats it..today has been good, he had toast and a sandwich..but nothing near what he should be having and Im not getting help!
Now when he poops he gets blistery sores on his bum, nothing takes those away, no diaper cream or anything.

I would take him to the Dr and ask for a Ped GI referral.

I would also get in to the allergist sooner if possible. Danny had this exact situation (minus the eating less at that point) when he was younger. The diarrhea was from a soy protein intolerance and the sores after pooping were from a carrot thing. We don't really know what that was about but the carrots would change his poop so that it would chemically burn his skin in seconds. We wound up slathering him in vaseline so that nothing would get through and that helped for the most part until we figured out the cause. (((HUGS))) I really hope he can get straightened out soon!

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

I second the GI referral. As a general rule, doctors should become alarmed when a child drops weight/percentiles and/or stops growing. I hope you sort it out soon.
