hi there
you forgot to mention the age of your daughter

if she is less than 5-8 years
i would suggest deworming once
try tab albendazole
usually one tab is enough
i would suggest one tab daily for 3 days

if she is a bit older
i would suggest tan omeprazole 20 mg once daily in the morning
and avoid fatty and heavy food

you might want to find out if she has a foos allergen
see if she complaints of more pain after some foods
or less pain when some food is avoided

an ultrasound/mri abdomen will always help

best of luck
