Hi dear,
Hypothyroidism is known to cause tight stools. Make sure your child's thyroid levels are normal. Stools are formed by the fiber we take. Unless we increase the fiber content which includes fruits, green vegetables, water, green leaves we cannot improve constipation. Evict is a temporary measure. Change in diet and good activity will only bring a change and that too takes atleast a month to see a change.

Take care
