Help! 3 year old with really really sore bottom (he's hopping around from the pain) from diarrhoea. Any magic things i can try to relieve it? Have tried olive oil and putting him in a baby bath...Thanks!!!!

Sudocrem and the like.
Keep it in the fridge.

Or put a very cold wet flannel in a plastic bag and put it down his pants.

Bepanthen is magic too.

clean his bum with water and cotton woll.. and dab sry then pop some vasaline on.. it will help protect his skin when he goes next time and doesn't sting when it's put on. ( DD used to complain about sudocrem stinging)
