Word! Encopresis


Say: en-kuh-PREE-sis

Kids with encopresis have a bowel problem that dulls the normal urge to use the bathroom and they can’t control the accidents that follow. When a kid is very constipated, some liquid stuff that seems like diarrhea might leak around the hard poop that hasn’t come out yet. Treating constipation will make encopresis better.
