Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of chronic constipation which can occur due to many reasons and it is extremely important to find out the exact cause. It seems to be due to inadequate fibres in diet and due to poor food intolerance and digestion. Need not to worry. Drink one spoon of honey in warm water daily. You should add laxatives in diet and you can apply esbogol as well around anal area opening. I would advise you to consult your physician or gastroenterologist and get examination done like complete blood count, stool examination, ultrasound scan of abdomen, and colonoscopy examination. Doctor may prescribe you traditional drugs like lactulose, milk of magnesia and cremaffin or bisacodyl tablets. You should start treatment after complete examination.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
