  • My younger brother had a leakage problem, but he also had blockage in his intestines. Once that was cleared, the seepage stopped. No surgery or anything was needed, so hopefully none for your LO either.

  • It may be something he is eating. Potato chips have been known to cause anal leakage and so have other things. Check some of the foods that he has been eating most often for the past 3 weeks and see if that may be causing it. Good luck to you and your family.
