she frequent vomiting also. currently still giving her breast milk. . if i left soiled diapers for a while, ants coming to her diapers. is that because of her disease??

Answer
Hi, salina,

There is plenty of information online regarding Crohns disease.  You need to sit down and have a discussion with your doctor or a member of his staff to understand this important diagnosis.  I guess with any soiled diapers, ants might eventually come to the diaper.  Please discuss this with your doctor.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
