A rectal prolapse is a disorder that causes part of your kid’s rectum to tumble downvia his anus. The rectum is the end of your kid’s bowel. A prolapse might happen during your child’s bowel movement. A prolapse might also happen when your youngster is 1 to 5 years of age, when he starts standing or potty training. The reason of your child’s rectal prolapse might not be known.
Rectal prolapse transpires most often in kids under age 6 and in the elderly. In kids, it can be found with cystic fibrosis and whip worm (trichuriasis). In grown-ups, it is typically found with constipation. It is also more common in individuals with autism, psychiatric disorders and intellectual frailty.
What are the signs and symptoms of a rectal prolapse?
- Rectal tissue seen via the anus after or during your kid’s bowel movement
- Pain or uneasiness during a bowel movement
- Enflamed, pink, or red rectum
- Bleeding or mucus from your kid’s rectum that might happen from rubbing against his underwear or diaper
- The main symptom is a reddish-colored mass that branches out from the opening of the anus, particularly following a bowel movement. This reddish mass is essentially the internal lining of the rectum. It might bleed marginally and can be uncomfortable and excruciating.
