Posted on Fri, 14 Jul 2017 in Pregnancy
Question: Hello doctor,

My wife has delivered a baby 25 days back. Now she is having constipation like feeling and huge pain near her anus area since she went to motion around 1 hour back. Please let us know if there is any quick remedy to ease the pain?

Also, the gyneac at hospital had precribed "Looz" lotion for constipation, but since i did not find it in the pharmacy i bought Lactihep syrup by Cipla after the pharmacist suggestion. Please let us know if this is safe for a breastfeeding mother to consume?

Thanks,
XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX

Pain due to straining

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to HCM.Thanks for writing in to us with your health concerns. There might be superficial tear due to straining bcause of constipation. She can take Piclin syrup 3 teaspoon to soften her stools . As of now she can take unltracet tablet to reduce pain. Ask her to drink lots of water . It will help in milk production and relief from constipation.Regards Dr Manisha Jain.

Thanks doctor for the reply. I have Lactihep syrup (Cipla company) at the moment, is that safe for both baby and mother?

Also, a family doctor suggested Wocaine 2% gel to be applied near Anus area. Is that good too?

Thanks,
