Blood stains around the anus during motion in a 1.7 year old. Is there any thing to worry about ?

Hi Doc! My daughter is 1.7yrs old. Shes does not pass motion daily and some times it even has gone up to 5-6 days. Finaly when she does, she cries a lot and there would be blood stains around the anus. Shes been facing this problem for the past 3 months. When we took her to the hospital, doc advised us to give her lots of veg and fruit diet . He even gave medicines: Duphalac (lactulose sol)-10ml b.i.d for 2 months; Cremaffin plus-5-10 ml once (2 months) and Ducolax suppostrel for 3 days. We have been following these instructions but she passes motion only after using Ducolax. I wonder why it tightens so much within 24 hrs. I am feeling really sad to see her struggle daily and cannot tolerate to see her cry. It will be very kind of you if you could help me. Thanks a lot!!

Hi Jasmin
Welcome to healthcare magic
Your daughters constipation may be hereditary or nutritional i.e due to inadequate intake of fibre and water.Sometimes it is normally seen in infants and toddlers due to tight musculature of anus but if that is the case you neednot worry as it resolves gradually as age advances.
Your doctor has given apropriate treatment and advice.Only thing I would advice is try to avoid any iron containing tonics if you have been using one .Also find out if she has developed a fear due to pain associated with potty time .Dont worry and dont stress the child, soon all will be fine.
Thank you
