Hello and thanks for the query.
Constipation is better treated with change in diet and fluids .
Try to give your child a banana once in the morning and once in the evening. Give fresh orange juice and raisins.Give plenty of water. All these to be given besides her regular diet. Stop biscuits, chocolates and other Fatty food. You can also give wheat bread .
Within 2 to 3 days she should start having normal bowel movement. For the redness around the anus, apply some pure coconut oil and keep the area clean and dry.
Hope you are reassured.
