Son is afraid to poop
My 4.5 y/o son has been potty trained since he was three. He was always regular up until recently when he had a few days of constipation which lead to a painful BM and some diaper rash and soreness, possibly a hemorrhoid. The constipation is gone but for the last three weeks he has been afraid to go poop because he thinks it will hurt. So now he holds it as long as he possibly can. It’s becoming a huge issue, I can’t take him places for fear that he has held it so long that he will poop his pants. I don’t even know what I’ll do once spring break is over and he is back to preschool. I am at a loss here and wonder if anyone has been through a similar situation with their child?
