The piriton will help to stop him feeling itchy and scratching with his eczema, but won't treat the diarrhoea. There is not really anything you can give him other than to make sure he is taking in enough fluids so he doesn't get dehydrated, and using nappy rash cream.

Take him to the gp as piriton isn't licenced for under 1's unless prescribed by a doctor

very acidic foods that irritate sensitive skin and give loose bowels. Its a common problem with young children.

I would avoid and re introduce when older, over 1 yrs. i wouldnt call it allergy unless other symptoms appear .

Agree with other post mention to GP, and have it on record you are avoiding for now.
