Constipation in Children Medical Treatment
Patient Comments Read 8 Comments
Treatment usually consists of educating parents about the cause of the constipation. It is important for the doctor to reassure parents that it is neither their fault nor the child's and that nothing is psychologically wrong. If fecal soiling is present, negative attitudes about the condition need to be removed.
