School Bathroom Anxiety a Common and Misunderstood Problem: DocuSol® Kids Offers Help

Despite having completed potty training, many parents find that bathroom issues can continue to persist in their school-age children. Anxiety about using a public bathroom can lead to physical health issues in kids, like chronic constipation. DocuSol® Kids mini-enemas (https://docusolkids.com) were developed as a fast and effective treatment for constipation.

Children can find using a public school bathroom troubling for a variety of reasons: fear of embarrassment, fear of getting lost, concerns about toiletries that are different than those they use at home, and fear of missing out on activities in class. When children “withhold” their urine or feces, it can quickly become a medical issue that sometimes leads to complications. The Journal of Pediatric Health Care1 explored some of these complications, like bed-wetting, which can affect as many as 40 percent of children involved.   

For parents who need help with children who experience occasional constipation, DocuSol® Kids is an easy-to-use, reliable solution. Each DocuSol® Kids mini-enema contains a delivered dose of 100mg docusate sodium in a polyethylene glycol base, and is intended for use with children 2-12 years of age (with adult supervision). DocuSol® Kids provides fast and predictable results, typically within 2 -15 minutes. 2 In addition, DocuSol® Kids:

  • Is affordably priced for constipation relief.
  • Provides ease of use for both clinicians and parents.
  • Uses a non-irritating formula.
  • Has an easy, soft flexible tip for rectal use.
  • Is a recommended rectal therapy for those children unwilling or unable to swallow medications.

Parents and caregivers can count on DocuSol® Kids for an easy and safe rectal therapy. DocuSol® Kids products can be found on shelves at local retailers such as Rite Aid, HEB, Meijer’s and Albertsons as well as online at Amazon.com.
