Your son has a problem with constipation.I presume that you continuously keep him on a diet where he drinks plenty of water and you give him plenty of fibre rich food and fruit. That is the starting point. It could be that originally he had a small tear in his anus and even though this healed long ago he is still scared to pass a stool because he remembers the pain. You should be giving him a natural stool softener every day for at least a month. The best one to start off with is Duphalac,the dose is 5ml twice daily.This will get him going. If it does not work you may need to see a paediatrician again as your son may need clearing of constipated stool which he cannot pass in spite of the Duphalac treatment.
