My daughter has been complaining of a sore bottom, please help

My 5 1/2 year old daughter has been complaining of a sore bottom for the past few days and I originally thought she may have had a tear following a bout of constipation . I have just checked on her in bed and thought I saw what looked like Grey threads around her anus. Is this worms?

Welcome to HCM.
Now a days deworming is a routine practice and you can safely give medicine for the girl.
Syrup ZENTEL-5ml at bedtime and repeat the dose after 15 days.

blood may be due to constipation and not due to worms. grey threads you have observed can be worms. but to confirm I suggest you to go for stool examination. if your daughter is having loss of appetite and constipation, then you can go for albendazole 200mg syrup.
