  • Do you (or the person in question) take an iron supplement? That can cause those symptoms.

  • baby formula, hemorrhoids, medications, illnesses. Also sometimes a kid will hold in their stool and then becomes constipated as a result. They usually hold it in when they are afraid to go. Mostly afraid of it hurting.
