Coverage for children


The sprain is a disorder of sphincter control commonly encountered in children. The problem mainly arises in children who have not developed adequate control of the stools or defecation, but also in those who know how to control defecation, but still "get away" in forbidden places. The condition is also known as fecal incontinence.

At what age does the shroud appear?

Stuttering is not a disorder that occurs at any age. Newborns and infants, even some young children, do not physiologically manage to control their defecation. This is not abnormal or pathological. The escape on them is accepted up to the maximum age of 4 years. If your little one gets rid of feces in places other than the toilet after the age of 4 anisors, then you may be diagnosed with a joint.

What are the causes of overwork?

Over 90% of the cases of encoprezis are caused by functional constipation. This is a type of constipation without a medical cause. This type of encoprezis is also called involuntary. The feces are dry, strong and are evacuated with difficulty and pain.

Many little ones "intentionally" hold their feces and postpone defecation precisely to avoid the pain and discomfort of constipation. In this way accidents occur and they get rid of them at other times and places not allowed except at the pot or toilet. Stuttering is considered a symptom of some diseases, rather than a disease in itself.

Doctors argue that understanding the constipation requires explaining and understanding constipation. The number and consistency of the seats a child must have weekly varies according to several factors. Normally they should have around 3-4 defecations a week.

But not all children have to follow this rule. It is considered that a child who has a soft chair, easy to evacuate, every 3 days is not constipated. Children who have very strong chairs, difficult to evacuate are considered constipated. Therefore, it is important to see what causes constipation to find out why the sting has occurred.

Constipation can occur for several reasons:

  • inadequate diet;
  • dehydration or insufficient consumption of liquids;
  • difficulties / problems in switching from pot to toilet;
  • limited access to toilets;
  • public toilets, which do not offer the necessary degree of privacy.

Many children may suffer from constipation as a result of psychologically traumatic events - divorces, removals, conflicts, abuses, death of close persons, etc.

There are also children who suffer from voluntary overcrowding. They have a developed sphincter control, they know when to go to the toilet, but they choose not to do it voluntarily. Constipation is not a cause in such cases.

Rather, it occurs in children who go through stressful situations or who experience difficulties in the process of switching from pot to toilet. When overtraining occurs in older children, it may be caused by opposition / defiance disorder, behavioral problems, sexual abuse or other recent emotional trauma.

How is childbearing treated?

The treatment of the joint is different depending on the type diagnosed - voluntary or involuntary.
Involuntary blindness is treated by identifying and treating the cause that causes constipation. Recommended therapeutic schemes may include:

  • increasing the consumption of liquids;
  • increasing the amount of fiber in the daily diet;
  • prescription laxatives (taken only in the short term);
  • emptying the intestines by using the enema;
  • creating a stable weekly defecation program for the child.

The therapeutic behavior for the voluntary cover-up depends very much on the cause that triggered it in the first instance. It is possible for the physician to indicate a combined medication treatment (for the treatment of symptoms) with behavioral psychotherapy.

In addition, if the child is at the age when the education begins to use the toilet, it is advisable to pay close attention to the techniques you apply for this purpose. You have to make this process a pleasant, fun and child-friendly, not an extra stress.

Do not laugh and do not make jokes on behalf of the child because he does "poop on him"! Don't help him that way. The more you deepen his frustrations and make him lose his self-confidence and self-esteem.
