ANSWERED: Why does my baby cry every time he poops


Why does my baby cry every time he poops?

I had this problem with my daughter. She is 16 months old. She feels pain when pooping. The poop is very little every time. There is no fever. There is no bleeding.

This is related to constipation. Some boys and girls in this condition may also have blood in their poops.

After seeing the doctor, we found out that the pain was because of an “anal fissure”. The doctor said it should be treated immediately by a cream.

He prescribed a gel called Xylocaine Jelly 2% (lidocaine hydrochloride).

My daughter now is doing very well. Thank God!
