HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern first of all encourage the child for drinking more water stop the junk food, give fibber containing diet, send the kid for defecation every day even if he refuse to go for, ask him to stay there no matter whether he pass the stool or not, for better result "Sorbitol" syrup can be tried, hope this information helps you have nice day.
