My 5 year old son was playing and doing fine and he said he had to poop! He wen to the bathroom and when he pooped his turd was big around and long and looked really hard! Then his fever spiked to 102.5 all of a sudden! Can this be caused from his poop? I think he was kind of constipated! Thanks

  • There is probably some other type of illness going on, so just keep an eye on the temp and any other symptoms.

  • Her answer sounds right if I don't get my six yr old on the toilet everyother day he holds it in that's not what caused his fever he must have some type of virus keep eye on him.

  • It was probably a coincidence. There is a lot of viruses going around right now. Give her a fiber one bar as a snack everyday and a lots of water.

  • So, he literally worked up a sweat pinching that one off. OUCH! Maybe he needs more fiber in his diet.
