Hello. Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Related to bowel movements with crying should be equipped with some information related to crying whether because of pain such as a sign of a child holding a particular stomach, what shape BAB if there is mucus or blood or fluid, are there other symptoms such as fever, urination feels hot or incomplete, whether there was a similar history before, whether there is a history of other pain, whether there is a history of trauma to the abdominal area. Based on complaints there are several diseases that may be the cause, i.e.
- Anal wound
Constipation or constipation is a frequency of defecation that is less than the bias where in one week, humans defecate at least more than 3 times. The causes of constipation can be a number of things, such as changing dietary patterns, for example from breast milk to complementary foods, poor food hygiene, or certain medical conditions.
Anal wound is a wound that is usually in the form of pain during bowel movements and is often accompanied by visible bowel movements with blood. Usually occurs because they do not maintain the cleanliness of the anal area properly, pampers are rarely replaced so that it becomes damp and can cause injury and can even become an infection of the skin.
Intussusception is a condition in which part of the intestine is folded and infiltrated into other parts of the intestine, which results in a blockage in the intestine or intestinal obstruction. The main symptom of intussusception is absent abdominal pain. This pain usually appears every 15-20 minutes. Over time, the duration of the attack will be longer and the frequency of occurrence more often, can be accompanied by difficult bowel movements, pain around the stomach, palpable lumps in the stomach.

- A good diet according to nutrition and not too hard
- Make sure eating hygiene is maintained

- Pay attention to the child's condition if the child is increasingly fussy, difficult to fart, difficult to defecate, difficult to eat should be immediately taken to the hospital
