What are effects if inserting laxative into vagina in toddler?

I was trying to get my daughter who is 15 months old to sit still while inserting a laxative for some terrible constipation. However her father couldn t restrain her from moving around a lot and I might have accidentally put the laxative (Pedia-Lax Glycerin Suppos) into her vagina. Should I seek out medical treatment immediately?

Hello,

You need not worry much. Washing the area well with soap and water might be enough. You need to take her to hospital only if there is pain or irritation.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
