PHOENIX, April 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- DocuSol® Kids (https://docusolkids.com/) mini-enemas are often used by parents dealing with children who routinely avoid using the bathroom and become constipated. This problem is most likely experienced by younger preschool children, but can affect children of all ages. DocuSol® Kids is a simple, non-irritating formula designed for quick and easy use. If constipation is not dealt with early, this issue can last into adulthood.
The Oman Medical Journal1 cites a variety of complicated and challenging social and physical issues as the main reasons for bathroom avoidance in children. Called "stool withholding," children refusing to use the restroom is a fairly common issue faced by many parents and can lead to chronic constipation and incontinence, accounting for three percent of referrals to pediatric clinics in teaching hospitals.
Stool withholding is usually related to children having once passed a hard or painful stool and then subsequently fearing that same experience each time they go to the bathroom. Doctors believe that chronic constipation and incontinence can lead to larger generalized bathroom anxiety. Stool withholding can also develop into far more serious problems, including dangerous constipation, bedwetting issues, other leakages and even urinary tract infections. It is important to treat constipation in children as soon as possible, before these issues occur.
Each DocuSol® Kids mini-enema contains a delivered dose of 100mg docusate sodium in a polyethylene glycol base, and is intended for use with children 2-12 years of age (with adult supervision). DocuSol® Kids provides fast and predictable results, typically within 2-15 minutes. 2 In addition, DocuSol® Kids:
- Is affordably priced for constipation relief.
