hi my baby is 11 month old. he passes a very tight motion and it hurts him so much that he cries out with pain.... sometimes it bleeds also..... my dr. has prescribed lactulose solution and also Glycerin suppositories to insert in....he has also prescribed albendazole suspension for worms to be given once in a week, which i felt helped him.....
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Your child seems to have constipation due to which he is having hard stools and pain while passing stool due to rectal mucosa laceration and bleeding.
I advise you to give dietary fiber rich foods like mashed fruits, mashed vegetables, plenty of water.
You can stop albendazole as it is not advised below the age of one year.
Continue the rest of medication as per your doctor advise for his hard stools.
Hope I have answered your query.
