Thanks for posting your query.
due to impacted fecolith (dried stools) are very common in children as they generally avoid washroom while playing.
Impacted fecolith at times stuck to colon
and difficult to move further in colon.
Miralex may help in fecolith but Miralex (containing Polyethylene Glycol
) is contraindicated in children below 12 years.
You should consult with pediatrician/ gastroenterologist and should go for thorough check up.
You can give castor oil along with plenty of water.
If still he can't get relief, you can give 25 ml of liquid paraffin
and 25 ml of glycerine (although its unpalatable in taste).
In future, you should teach him to use washroom at proper interval.
