10 year old having clear discharge from the anus. Had diarrhea and constipation. Need to be worried?

my 10 year old daughter has been having small amounts of clear fluid leading out of her anus all day. She said she had some diarrhea this morning, then what seemed like clear mucous coming out, and now it s like water. She just went through a pretty nasty bout of constipation two weeks ago, but that has passed and she has had no trouble until today. She said she has no pain, but is petty gassy. She feels like she needs to defecate quite often, but nothing comes out. Something as simple as a cough or sneeze is causing this clear liquid to leak out. what is it? should I be concerned??

Hi,
Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have Gastroenteritis due to a bacteria or a protozoal.
Give sips of oral rehydrating solutions like ORS, coconut water to prevent dehydration.
Probiotic should be given orally after consulting your Doctor.
Consult your Pediatrician for the evaluation with stool investigations and appropriate treatment including antibiotic if required.
Hope I have answered your query.
