Hi Mrs Dholakia,

Thank you for your query.

Hard stools can be very annoying and Cremaffin will take time to act. I suggest that you insert Dulcolax Child Suppository in the anal canal or arrange to give an enema to the child to remove the hard stools. Once the hard stools are evacuated the child should get relief from the abdominal cramps.

In the longer run you need to ensure a proper diet modification for your son so that he does not get constipated. You will have to increase roughage in his diet. You may like to follow the link where I have written in detail about constipation and high fibre diet.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
