Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Your son is having constipation
I advise the following measures to get relief from this condition :
1. Ask him to take plenty of water and oral fluids
2. Make a habit of going to toilet on every day and sitting for 5 to 10 minutes there
3. Dietary fiber
rich foods like vegetables, fruits, and leafy vegetables to be given daily
4. During impaction
, rectal suppositories are used.
5.Oral softeners like lactulose
syrup can be given orally till his stool becomes soft and loose.
And underlying problems like anatomical and metabolic like hypothyroidism
has to be ruled out by doing appropriate investigations.
Hope I have answered your query.
