How to soften stool thats already ready 'to comeout' of my anus? Took Dulcolax but still painful :(
Varies: If a hard stool is right at the anus, a hot bath and manually removing the stool with your finger after the water has softened it may be your best choice at this time. Occasionally inserting a glycerin suppository may help draw water down to the hard stool or even the use of a Fleet's enema. Hope this helps.... http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/tc/constipation-age-12-and-older-home-treatment ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How long will a Dulcolax stool softener work? Gave one to my son at 7pm last night and he is STILL pooping. Do they usually last that long?
StartedSomething: The half-life (time it takes for the dose given to decrease by half) for dulcolax is 8 hrs.

Constipated for 3-4 days and have hemorrhoid. Dulcolax stool softener & preparation h cream doesn't help much. So painful when stool try to pass. Help?
May need surgery: If stool softeners don't help, the hemorrhoid could be thrombosed or clotted. The swelling can be very painful. You could possible have a fissure or tear and those are very painful as well. Other rx meds can possibly help or you may need surgery. See your doctor to determine the right course of therapy. ...Read more

Miralax (polyethylene glycol): I recommend drinking lots of water and using miralax, (polyethylene glycol) this type of fiber works with your body and doesn't necessarily force you to use the bathroom but lets you decide when you want to go. Each person has different reactions to fiber and some can cause bloating to some while others to have the same symptoms, so it is important to try a few to see which one works best for you. ...Read more
