where their bum has torn a bit when they are a bit constipated (i think the correct term is anal fissure), and then every time he poos it would stretch it, and it might hurt a bit...
come on -you know i am crap at explaining things...I'll see if i can finf a link

codswallop · 22/11/2004 19:28

Anal fissure sounds quite likely to hurts when you poo and itches afterwards. You need to make sure his poo is soft. May be worth trying to lubricate before a poo (e.g. with vaseline). I'd probably take him to the docs to see if it is a fissure, and they may give you a local anaesthetic cream to apply just before a poo.

and here is a link to a factsheet.

Wallace · 22/11/2004 19:37

Was that a sarcastic hadn't noticed ;) But honestly when I am trying to describe something in a post, I always wish I could just draw a quick diagram. That would make it so much easier to get across what I am trying to say.
Anyway gingernut has said what I needed to say...

gingernut · 22/11/2004 19:40

codswallop · 22/11/2004 19:41

so trip to docs then?

OP posts:
gingernut · 22/11/2004 19:52

Well, it depends how distressed he is I suppose. How long has it been going on? Are his poos soft? If not, you might need to get him some lactulose in which case you might as well go to GP for prescription (although you can buy it OTC). Personally I'd go as I know a fissure can be extremely painful and at least you'd know if it was a fissure or something else.

Wallace · 22/11/2004 20:00

maybe leave it a couple of days to see if he stops complaining, and if not, off to the docs. Meanwhile feed him lots of grapes and kiwi fruit

What happened to my italics?

motherinferior · 22/11/2004 20:01

Ooooh, poor little love. Hurty bottoms are horrid.

codswallop · 22/11/2004 20:25

he cried out the ohter evening that his bum hurt as he was going to bed.
woudl it hurt i f he farted?

OP posts:
gingernut · 22/11/2004 20:32

It might do. Pain on pooing is described as being like having cut glass pressed into you. I can't confirm this because I've never had cut glass pressed into me! But at its worst it is excruciating....usually it's not that bad though, I am sure he would be really screaming if it was as bad as it was for me at its worst (in fact, he would choose to hold his poo in if really bad). But if only a small tear, probably not that painful and worth trying to get it healed up quickly.

codswallop · 22/11/2004 20:33

I know.. had piles

oh yes, wiping hurts.

Try cleaning with water...gets it clean better and won't hurt like wiping. Can be sore if you use Kandoo or similar.
