Hi,

This can not be caused by inguinal hernia. Let him have more fibre rich items (green leafy vegetables, fruits, raw wheat) and drink plenty of fluids. Avoid non vegetarian items for few days. Instead, give proteins of plant origin(pulses, soy). These measures might help. Also, we need to treat constipation if any.

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

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