What Causes Pain During Defecation In Children?
Constipation seems to be the cause.
Thanks for asking on Health Care Magic.
I have gone very carefully through your query. The fearfulness in your daughter is likely to be the result of constipation. Incidentally, constipation in children has become a very frequently encountered problem these days. The primary reason for the same is lack of adequate play as well as the lack of adequate amounts of fiber containing foods in diet.
Going through the following link should help:
The mainstay of treatment would be to increase the total dietary fiber consumption. Dietary fiber supplements can be given safely. Wheat, corn, and rice XXXXXXX are high in insoluble fiber, which helps prevent constipation. XXXXXXX can be sprinkled into her favorite foods, from hot cereal and pancakes to muffins and cookies. Many popular high-fiber cereals and bars are also packed with XXXXXXX Beans really are the magical fruit. Isabgol (psyllium husk) or senna can also be given as fiber supplements. Miralax contains polyethylene glycol (PEG) which is an osmotic laxative and can be continued.
Make sure that she drinks plenty of water and goes to pass stool at a regular time every day (irrespective of whether she feels an urge to pass). This will demote stool holding habits and would promote regular bowel habits.
It might still be a good idea to visit a doctor and get her clinically evaluated.
