Constipation is a very common problem in children.

Some children are constipation caused by pain caused by their departure time. The pain can be caused by anal fissures, hemorrhoids, or simply because of rectal contraction. The pain is the cause of constipation.

We distinguish between two situations:
Chronic diarrhea: a steady state, at least a week without deteriorating fast.
Acute diarrhea: Various conditions, deteriorating child every day.
In a state of chronic diarrhea We identify two reasons – one is the weakness of the digestive system, the other is offensive food.
The weakness of the digestive system does not allow the transformation of food and liquids, and aqueous ports are created with undigested food.
Infants looked White Flecks, sour milk stool. Weaned children seem undigested food as leftovers.
Exits without smell real.
