Sudden increase in bowel movements

My dc is 2yo and is a regular little lad when it comes to his movements. You can usually set your watch by him actually. He has a poo once a day and occasionally skips a day. Today however he has had six poos and his little bottom is red raw! I've asked if he feels ok and he said yes but has a tummy ache.

Further information:
He has just finished a week of amoxicillin last Wednesday, he's still in nappies (don't know how to start toilet training really as he doesn't seem keen), he's breastfed, he's very vocal so can explain and understand well.

Should I be worried? I'm obviously just putting it down to the fact his DGM gave him a massive Easter egg yesterday for now but don't know if that's enough to make him poo six times!

Prob the anti biotics tbh
Pop some barrier cream on his bottom
Pro biotics help after anti biotics and I always give my kind ds them after a course

I tend to get optibac ones
Dairy should be avoided after stomach upset as it can cause temporary lactose intolerance
I get mine from Amazon

Well I'm dairy free so I know his bedtime feeds are safe. It might have been the chocolate bunny 😐 I'll amazon prime it tonight. Thank you x
