Bowel Movement causing Painful Rash

Patient

Q: My 24 month old had bowel movements which caused a VERY bad rash. He drank red fruit punch, which he has had on previous occasions, but this time his stool was really loose and red. I changed his diaper when he urinated and it was fine. An hour later when he had the bowel movement, the red, tender rash showed up. It was a painful rash. He had at least 4 more of these over in the night. The wet diapers did not cause pain, but the red stool did. How many movements does it take to get the red juice out of his system? Could this have been something other than the red fruit punch?
