Hello doctor,

My kid is 1 year old. Since the last three to four months, she has constipation issues. Her doctor prescribed her a medicine which worked for a while. But, now she again has it.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Transient constipation in a 1 year old child improves with diet modification. Most of the medications used to treat constipation treat the acute phase and are for symptomatic relief.
  1. You should include more roughage in her diet like fruits and vegetables.
  2. Avoid giving marketed products like biscuits, chips, and chocolates. These are known to cause constipation.
  3. Increase water intake.

If there is any other query, do let me know.
