Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum
Painful constipation needs medication. If the stool is hard, there could be bleeding from the rectum as well. Children often have foul smelling stool/diarrhoea esp during teething/dentition, nothing to worry. Did you make any changes in his food? Visit his pediatrician for constipation med, or you can see a homeopath for the same.
