Hi Eswara Kumar, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
If he is passing stools once in 3 days, he is suffering from Constipation. May be you are not feeding him with proper diet. Kindly take him to a Pediatrician so that he can examine and rule out the exact cause for Prescribing Medications. Give him Plenty of fluids and water and fiber rich foods like fresh fruits and Green Leafy Vegetables.

Good Luck.

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
