Child passing soft sticky stools. Drinking fluids with extra fiber. Other solutions?

I have a 6 year old daughter, who is currently having trouble with soft, sticky poop . She is finding it very hard to go--she will push but not much comes out---sticks to her bum which causes her to push more because she feels that there is still more to come out. This sticky poop seems to come along when she has had a fever and not feeling well and will last once she is feeling better. We are already giving her drinks with extra fibre in them (benefibre) anything else we can do

thank you for your query

along with the fibre drinks you can also give her lots of fluid.
fibre acts by absorbing water from the body and making the stool easy to [ass hence only fiber and no water will still leave your daughter constipated.

also give her lots of fruit juices,green vegetables,salads.
avoid junk food for a while

hopefully the information helped you,
thank you for your query.
wishing you good health
