What Is Liquid Paraffin?

Liquid Paraffin is a drug which has been used for many years in order to treat constipation. It does this by acting as a lubricant to aid the passing of stools in those that find it painful or uncomfortable when doing so. This medicine does not treat other symptoms associated with constipation such as abdominal pains or flatulence. It is recommended to use this medicine on children with constipation as they tend to make their case worse by avoiding going for bowel movements due to the pain.

See more information on constipation on the NHS website.
