Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern if there is history of constipation in the age of 4 year child and no medical cause found during the investigation then this proves that the diet of the child need to be changed the junk food is responsible for this even the tin containing food may the reason for this, you have to start giving the home made food, encourage the child for drinking more water, no need to give any medicine for this, hope this information helps you, have nice day.
