Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Even though the child may not be constipated some times a child may pass a hard stool.
This hard stool may result in tearing of the mucosa at the anal region. This is very painful. This could be one of the causes i can think of in your kid as a cause of pain.

Increase of green leafy vegetables along with plenty of water intake prevents against such problems.

A rectoscopy will help in diagnosis

Hope this helps
Take care
