Brief Answer:
Donot Neglect

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

This can be managed by adopting good eating behavior like consuming more of green leafy vegetables, fiber rich food, banana, papaya and drinking lot of fluids. This will improve your intestinal motility and add good consistency to your stool.

You can take Syp Duphalac, 5ml, twice daily for atleast 15 days which may regularize your bowel habits and improve your condition.

Even after this, if your symptoms are persisting you may require some lab tests like stool examination,per rectal examination and barium enema. Which can be performed by an gastroenerologist.

Thank you.
