Hi, I just wanted to ask what kind of antibiotics you have taken, and for what length of time?? I ask because my daughter from being born suffered with serious diarrhoea, causing very bad complications. She was hospitalised many many times. It took until she was 3 before they found out the cause. She had IgA deficiency with bacterial overgrowth. We found a fantastic paediatrician who was simply a lifesaver. She put my daughter on a years course of antibiotics (cefelexin) and after about
3 months we started to see the benefits. She was able to attend nursery, make it to the bathroom, not scream in pain from stomach cramps and best of all, no
open weeping sores on her private parts. I'm not sure if any of this helps, but although she still has the igA deficiency and the bacterial overgrowth it is now under control. The consultant explained that any antibiotics must be taken for a least six months, and further courses may be necessary in the future. It's not something which can be fixed quickly. I hope you find some help with this, because I know how it can affect your life. A word of warning about
total cleansing. Be sure to ask your doctor first as we were told washes and cleansing can sometimes make this worse. Take care x x
