Question: My two years old daughter came back from daycare and is complaining of pain around the anus. I gave her a shower to fill the area and it is kind of tender. Only close family members take care of her beside the daycare ( with 2 ladies one off them since she is one). Beside not wanting to put a diaper she is pretty fine plays as usual with maybe less appetite.

Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX

I understand what you think!
I feel that you should show her in ER immediately to know the cause more so because you say it's tender.

The other cause for pain may be anal fissure .

Local analgesic application can help in pain.

All the best
God bless

Thank you! I did applied A&D ointment on it and see how she spend the night, if still painful this morning we r going straight to ER. Her speech is not perfect but can be understood, I was wondering how to recognize the signs of something being wrong? Like I stated before only my mom, my sister, my husband(dad) & me changed her or give baths. Should I mention it at the Daycare Center?

Hi ,
Yes of course you should mention your doubts later to the doctor when they try to explain what could be the problem.
The doctors can find out from the examination of the child.

I feel you should first wait for the doctor's report before you mention to the day care centre.
Otherwise it will be unnecessary confusion!

Hope she recovers fast.
Good luck
Dr Uma

Hi, My 3 and a half year old daughter has suffered from constipation since about 5 weeks of age, she has been hospitilised in the last week and was given klean-prep for 19 hours to clean her out, She has been witholding her stools for the past 2 months due to anal fissures and in the last 2 weeks is holding her urine as well, she has had 3 urinary infections in the last 6 months, she has been on benefiber for the past year and her stools a soft but large due to the holding on.

My daughter has autism and global development delay and is non verbal. Is this urine holding part and parcel with the bowel problems?

i was diagnoised with an anal fissure last week. I have started a cream. I hadve had an undiagnoised right sided perhiprheal neropaty and pelvic fl dysfunction. In april I had a very hard movement and it felt as if all was falling out of my rectum and vaginia. I developed hemoroids, in April. I was given a ducolax suppository for constipation which burned my insides and created more rectal tisssue. I had to strain ito initiate and finish a b.m. the tissue became untoucable and worsened. now before I have a b.m. all tissue goses back into my rectum and comes out with the movement. I have severe pain. the first colorectal surgeon i saw performed two anoscopes which created more apin and diagnoised me with grade 3 hemroids. from august till just recently i maintined my diet and took warm baths the hemoriods did not reduce. my b.m. are 5 days old. i get severe bloating and recently abdominal pain. my crps was limited to the right side of my body but my rectum and stomach were not effected as far as pain until april. is it typical for the tissue to go in and out in this manner before a b.m.
