There are several pharmaceutical companies that formulate and sell stool softeners for treating constipation. Since the use of stool softeners could cause side effects like nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea, throat inflammation (in case of oral liquid), etc,. people prefer to follow home remedies and self-care tips to tackle the problem of hard stools. Unlike some of the chemically-formulated stool softeners, home remedies are relatively safe and don't pose long-term health risks. Here are some of the effective home remedies for treating constipation.
Constipation can be a frustrating problem for adults and children alike. Constipation in young ones, especially babies is even more annoying, as they cannot express the symptoms. Naturally, the frequency of bowel movement and the texture of stool, are the only means of identifying if your child is constipated or not. Low-fiber diet, inadequate fluid intake, are some of the common causes of constipation in little ones. In adults, stool softeners are often used to cure this digestive problem. However, while using a stool softener for children one has to be extra careful, and as far as possible, rely upon natural remedies.
