 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My daughter has a small anus. The pediatrician suggested using an anal dilator for 2 to 3 months, which we did. However even after doing so, while passing stools, she starts crying. What treatment do you recommend? If this is left untreated will it lead to piles?

Pramela (Philadelphia, USA)

A: If the size of the anus is small, the treatment is repeated dilatation as advised by your pediatrician. It has no long-term side effects. If she still has some pain while passing stools you can try a mild laxative like Cremoffin liquid 5ml at bedtime for 2 weeks. If the problem still persists, please consult a pediatric surgeon.

Pramela (Philadelphia, USA)

A: Keep in touch with the pediatrician and follow his advice. If required, you can also see a pediatric surgeon. Feed her a diet that will help soften her stools. Give her a banana a day. However, while this may ease her discomfort, there could be other problems. Your doctor is in the best position to diagnose such problems. Complications (not only piles) could arise if such cases are not treated adequately.
