Hi, I'm new to the site. I'm very stressed as is my 2 yo. I started to potty train him 3 wks ago. Everything was going very well until about a wk a go he didn't poo for 2 days which is very unlike him. He was happily doing poos on potty and toilet. He started developing a rash around his bum. I thought it was just nappy rash, which In hindsight isn't normal for him as he's never suffered from it. The rash got worse even tho I was treating it with sudo crem. I tried aloe Vera gel as well but to no avail. I then started googling rashes and realised it was probably fungal infection. So I took a pic and showed the doc she said yes it was. She prescribed some cream and the rash is on its way out..yay! However he refused to even sit on toilet now as he's been in so much pain from trying to poo with this nasty rash. He's petrified of pooing full stop. He went 3 times yesterday in his nappy but screamed and cried every time. I reckon hed be fine now but he's been physiologically traumatised from pooing wit a pain rash. How do I reassure him that it's ok now. It feels like over tried everything !!! I'm at my wits end now. My husband and I keep bickering now too were so stressed.
