Hello, Sorry to introduce myself with such a lovely topic!!! I have a 5year old son who has Nethertons syndrome (Jake), he has suffered with constipation for as long as I can remember.He is on and off lactulose (laxatives) regularly he either can't go to the loo or can't hold it in! He has a well balanced diet, but I can't find a happy medium. It causes him great distress and when constipated, his skin is worse than usual. I wondered if anyone could offer any advise, I would also like to add that I am so pleased that I found this site, it is excellent. Many thanks Lisa
