The Cause Of Children Who Do Not Want To Defecate Bowel At The Age Of 8 Years?
Night. Regarding my child’s health. The age is 8 years. But often when defecating I feel lazy to squat / push in the toilet, so more often pooped in my pants. Things like this have been running for 4 years. What I want to ask: ? 1. Approximately how to treat it, every treatment is only given laxatives,. 2. Is there an abnormality in the digestive system of my child or is there really something else like illness until the psychic feels trauma or lazy to get used to squatting straining when Pup.? Please enlighten me. thank you.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints experienced by your child, actually still need further information, including how many times he defecated in a day, or how many days. Then what are the characteristics of the stool, is it runny or solid, is the color whether there is an abnormality, whether there is blood and so on.
Regarding defecation which does not want to squat itself requires clarification, whether he used to want to squat or not, and since he was 8 years old, he could be asked if the reason why he did not want to squat. However, not wanting to squat could indeed be his choice, because there was a toilet seat. Even now many adults are not accustomed to using a squat toilet. Another case if your intention is he is reluctant to use the lavatory.
So because there are still many things that need to be clarified, you should check your child at a pediatrician. Her child's doctor will later assess whether the source of the problem is physical or psychological illness. If the problem is physical, it may be that his stool is out before he reaches the toilet, or it can be said, he still cannot resist the urge to defecate, instead of not wanting to use the toilet. It could also be due to a retaining muscle abnormality or a disorder called encopresis. However, if he is physically fine and this is more psychological, such as being ashamed of his friends, animals or having been scared in the toilet and so on, maybe your child will be referred to a child psychiatrist by his child's doctor.
Meanwhile, because the possibilities are unclear, all you can do is give your child an understanding, that his behavior must change. Don't scold him and try to understand him. Then, immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
