My almost 5 year old has been potty trained since he last January of 09. We are looking at a possible diagnosis of Aspergers and a genetic syndrome called 16p11.2 duplication (We did the bloodwork last week). We have a 2 year old with PDD_NOS and a genetic syndrome called 16p11.2 duplication.
At any rate, my son keeps holding his poo and as a result has been since August. It's getting bad again to the point where he won't let us know when he had an accident and would rather sit in it. He sat for HOURS today in his feces. I don't know what to do?! Before he was hiding it, I would clean him up matter-of-factly because he has a side affect from holding it where it comes out on it's own, encopresis.
We've upped his fiber intake, given him laxitives, tried miralax, tried pedilax and nothing is working! The fiber just makes more seep out, the laxitives work once and no more, the miralax gave him gas pains but nothing else and the pedilax caused him to have it run all the way down his leg....cue in the anxiety....and now he won't take it any more.
I'm running out of ideas. He's got excema and it usually is on his butt; sitting in his own poop doesn't help.
